Preparing for a (short) month in China

I'll be flying out next week to China to visit my in-laws and have them meet our daughter. We'll be in the country, in QiDong Shi, Hunan.

And I'm taking a couple of USB sticks with me (1 and 8GB), loaded to boot Ubuntu Jaunty 64-bit and 32-bit.

I am planning to build a computer there for my wife parents. And of course I want it to run a Linux distribution (and my favourite one as well).

Now it will be very interesting to see how the new computer and OS will be accepted by first time Chinese user! I'm actually wondering if I should setup one one my stick to boot the new Netbook remix... that would probably have all the required user firendliness (and eye candy).

 Yeah, let's test this out on a VM this week end ^_^.
