Ubuntu10.10 Netbook review & gallery

Ubuntu 10.10 netbok desktopI have downloaded Ubuntu10.10 Netbook version. This ISO file is slightly larger than desktop releases ISO size. You know I had tried to run it in VirtualBos OSE. But failed. I thought Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook is not start in desktop hardware, but it is not true. No required driver detected for unity problem caused for lower graphics card. I told you that I burn the ISO file on a compact disk and insert it in cd drive and seitch on my computer. It takes at leas 18 minutes to start desktop. It is a very long time to start an operating system. But I know that my CDDrive is an ancient one. Though it has 32x write capability but it won't work. I waited till it show desktop. I went on kitchen and do wash for 15 minutes. I came back to computer several time to check if it starts or not. At last I came to Ubuntu 10.10 netbook desktop.

At a glance everybody will look at the leftbar. It's called "Unity apps menu". This left bar comes with some common application. To run an app, click on the app icon (launcher).

If you hover, you see a caret indication looks like a tool tip. You can not add a new link here but remove an item with dragging it by left click and from the right click sub-menu. You can rearrange the launcher icons by dragging them to up or down with left mouse fills up and foldup accordianThis bar works like active window viewer. If this bar fills up, the apps icons at the top and bottom goes fold up accordion style. Hover mouse pointer over an icon to return to normal size. By dragging or scroll that icons up and down we can see those that are lower down or higher up on that bar.

  1. The new interface on Ubuntu 10.10 is called Unity. It is touch-capable, and optimized for use on netbooks and small, mobile computers. The image below shows what you see when you first log in to a UNE-powered computer. Just an empty desktop with a standard GNOME top panel and applications launcher panel (Launcher) to the left. The Launcher plays the role of the bottom panel on a standard GNOME desktop. It features launchers for the most popular applications, and will expand to show the launchers for open applications that are not on it by default.
