As nice as gOS’s desktop looks, the rest leaves a lot to be desired for! It was running on a version of Ubuntu that was a year old (8.04), and the menu’s looked terribly ugly.
The first thing I did (well second – first was peeling off the plastic) was install the latest release of Ubuntu. It was not as straight forward as I had hoped – I was without wireless networking and the touchpad didn’t work, but after three days of blood sweat and tears, I had it sussed.
The next few posts will detail how to get the agora pro working with the latest version of Ubuntu – 9.04 (jaunty jackalope) – using Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
