Kubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition

In May 2010 I purchased Toshiba NB 305 Netbook, it comes with Windows 7 starter edition.
Well, it was working just fine, light and speedy, until I decided to protect my Windows with AntiVirus and Firewall application, you know, Windows’ eternal companions! That’s where it started to be slow, slow enough to make me frustrated.
Then I decided to install Kubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition since I am already using Kubuntu on my Laptop.
It’s kind of slow, but I think I’ll buy 2 GB RAM to replace the installed 1 GB.
One thing that’s quite interesting so far is the interface, it is optimized for netbooks, and looks great and handy.
It’s updating right now, and I am not sure if it will play my media files smoothly, usually, I install smplayer on Kubuntu.
For those interested, there is Ubuntu Netbook Remix, many of Internet users giving good impression about it. I am a KDE guy, so, not ready for it yet.
