Month ago had upgraded Ubuntu Netbook Remix at our EeePC to 10.10, and i was very disappointed about it :( It become much worse than 10.04. It’s very slow, new UI are unusable, but “desktop UI” and previous version (aka “2D”) are broken :( When you are trying to open “File manager” is requires at least 7-10 seconds!!! Even WinXP can show you your files in 1-2 seconds. And every time you click on it, it starts showing you from the start! So, for example, if you are uploading photos to facebook, and browsing your local images directory, to select what to upload (as you know Ubuntu still can’t make thumbnail list at “Open File Dialog”, just like “windows 3.11”), you must start browsing to last opened picture every time you click on “File manager”. It takes 10-20 clicks every time. If you remembered last directory.
So Netbook Remix are unusable on ASUS eeePC, it’s also much slower than Windows 7 or Windows XP :( Common guys, it’s just an Atom 1.6 Ghz with 1Gb of memory. Looks like 10.10 optimized for at least Core2Duo with 2-3 Gb, even netbook version.
So, as a result we had installed Windows 7 on this netbook. There are no alternative now :( And I am very saddened by this.
