I have all but abandoned all things Linux for several months, pretty much since I started at the UW. But tonight, while working on my seismology homework, I decided to play around a bit. I upgraded my Eee Netbook from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10. And then, since I still wasn’t done my seismology homework by the time I finished with that, I decided to go ahead and try out the Netbook remix, just for fun. The last time I tested it was over a year ago. I started off running it directly from the USB drive. As expected, this method was a bit slow – but enough to make me wonder if I’d given up on Netbook remixes too soon (um, I don’t even think anyone calls it a “netbook remix” any more. I’m so behind the times). Which led me to a quick search for Jolicloud, to see what they’ve been up to lately. And it looks pretty fancy. Perhaps I’ll give it a go, just for fun… it looks way different than how I remember it. More webby….
