Ubuntu Netbook Remix
This may be the first computer seen running Ubuntu's Netbook Remix
, a new version of the open-source OS designed for mini- laptops like the Eee PC. It's shown here on an Amtek tablet computer with a 10.2-inch display and Intel's new Diamondville Atom processor. Amtek
is a contract manufacturer that serves mostly Japan, but also Tulip Computers
in Europe. The device has a touch screen and is for use in restaurants and other work settings, but Amtek will also make Ubuntu mininotebooks for consumers; such models should be on sale in a few months.
