Ubuntu Goes Ultraportable
Anonymous Reader writes "The growing number of ultraportable notebook computers has caused many people to reevaluate their choice of an operating system. These systems are small, lightweight, and generally have long battery lives, but their limited processing power presents a problem for newer operating systems and graphic-intensive applications. This article goes over the use of Ubuntu 7.04 in order to optimize the performance of Fujitsu's P7230 notebook. This notebook has a 10.6" LED-backlit LCD and is under 3 pounds, but uses a 1.2GHz Intel Core Solo U1400 processor that has some problems dealing with its stock operating system, Vista Business, especially during multitasking."
