I’m not a huge linux fan, I’ll be upfront about that! But I understand that there are some great things going on in that respect so here is a blog I picked up on, I’ll be doing some more indepth investigation myself and look forward to finding out about what the options are. But I won’t be installing it!

I have not used linux very much, to be honest to have to start coding the drivers myself to make standard peripherals work is not my idea of fun. Tried it and got very frustrated with it very soon.November 15, 2008 at 1:14 pm #168822jezMember
yeah, it always seems like a lot of work and given that you get an XP license with your NC10 the “cost” argument doesnt really apply. Still, I’m open minded and will be interested to see how that guy gets on. But I won’t be installing it!November 25, 2008 at 11:55 pm #168827SpudboyMember
Use VMware or Virtualbox, that way you can play as much as you want. I’ve got Backtrack 3 vm’ed.November 29, 2008 at 6:26 pm #168838scaltroMember

im currently running backtrack 3 from usb on the nc10 which works great. it fully recognises the wifi chipset. ubuntu eee is okay but im not completly happy with it, and i cant find a way of uninstalling it cleanly to just leave win xp as the original o.sNovember 30, 2008 at 11:43 pm #168832joepleaseMember

I have a question for those who installed Ubuntu on their Sammys:
Do all the Fn key combinations (brigthness, volume control, etc.) work?December 8, 2008 at 3:01 pm #168844SzabsMember
Nope. Although brightness has a workaround. Have a look at this site: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NC10December 8, 2008 at 4:05 pm #168829KarosMember
Looks like it’s possible, just needs a bit of work.
Still waiting for my Sammy, otherwise I’d be running Ubutu already 😀December 10, 2008 at 11:28 am #16883971notoutMember
I’m hopefully going Ubuntu dual boot tomorrow. I have played around with Linux slightly in the past, and have done some stuff to my wife’s Aspire One Linpus machine but I have a friendly geek at work who is going to help me with the more difficult bits….December 10, 2008 at 8:29 pm #168834BlackWhizzMember

I think I might give it a try with Wubi also, or just install to USB … I did install to my USB drive but didn’t load up the boot manager 🙁December 11, 2008 at 7:48 pm #168837gunadzMember
Has anybody managed to get the Netbook-Remix working on their NC-10? I’ve been trying but nothings really come out of it yet for me. Any tips?
