  1. 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.

  2. it will not work on the intel atom it says need i389 even the 32 bit version for linux mint and linux unbuntu
