Best Distribution for Netbooks/Limited Hardware

Although we kept the title "Ubuntu Netbook Remix" this year, it's really a misnomer, as Ubuntu has consolidated its Netbook interface (Unity) into its main product. With their tiny screens, every pixel counts, and Canonical's one-size-fits-all design works well on a Netbook. It's neat to see Android so high on the list, however. With laptop docks for phones and keyboards for tablets, Android is becoming a viable operating system for more than just making calls and checking e-mail.

  • Ubuntu Netbook Remix (any flavor): 25.9%

  • Debian: 14.9%

  • Android OS: 14.1%

  • ArchLinux: 12.7%

  • Other: 11.3%*

  • Puppy: 7.1%

  • Fedora: 3.9%

  • Chrome OS: 3.1%

  • MeeGo: 2.5%

  • PCLinuxOS (any flavor): 1.7%

  • Slax: 1%

  • Slitaz: 1%

  • Jolicloud: .9%

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
