Linux-Netbook.com is dedicated to small laptops running Linux based operating systems like Android, Chrome OS, Joli OS, Linux Mint, MeeGo, and Ubuntu. We encourage and support using free and open source software.
In this video Matt Hartley demonstrates Linux Mint 12 on an ASUS Eee PC 1005PE netbook. He shows how to boot the operating system from a live disk, introduces some of the features of Linux Mint, and provides usage tips in his walk through.
The new version of Linux Mint may be a good netbook operating system alternative, especially for Ubuntu users who are not happy with Unity but want to stick with an Ubuntu based system.
One of the tools Matt recommends in his video is Jupiter, a light weight power and hardware control applet for Linux with the goal to improve battery life of portable computers by automatically adjusting settings based on battery or powered connection.
For further information regarding the installation of Linux Mint on a small screen device as well as tips for additional software packages to make your life easier check out Matt's show notes.
For me Linux Mint is one of the candidates to replace Ubuntu on my desktop, I'll probably stick with Joli OS on my netbook. Anyone else who has used Linux Mint on a netbook who wants to share their experiences?
