Three Top Linux Options for Your Netbook

If you feel Windows 7 Starter is too limited, here are three Linux distros that may suit you better.

Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Although it's based on the popular Linux distro, Ubuntu Netbook Remix is not a pruned-down version of Ubuntu. Instead, this lightweight OS was built mostly from the ground up; its developers discarded old, legacy code not relevant to netbook system specifications.

Jolicloud

Even in its alpha state, Jolicloud proved itself to be stable and provided a great out-of-the-box experience. Jolicloud ran smoothly on the test netbook and was a pleasure to use.
