    Am disappointed that Ubuntu Linux Remix is not available to individuals to use.
    Purchased a netbook with Intel Atom processor and wrongly assumed that Ubuntu Linux Remix would be available to individuals and not just to commercial companies. How disappointing. Ubuntu is changing to favor the commercial vendor.
