Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Registered 2008-05-20 by UNR Developers

Ubuntu Netbook Remix is a 'remix' of the standard Ubuntu Desktop release to enable it to work better on devices with small screens, such as Netbooks (sub-notebooks), although these packages will work on any 8.04 (Hardy) or 8.10 (Intrepid) installation.
Note that UNR is deprecated and doesn't exist anymore since 10.10 (Natty) as now fully integrated into Ubuntu Desktop Edition.

Previous UNR will still be supported in the version lifetime.

Packages
======

go-home-applet: a super-charged 'show-desktop' applet which, in addition to showing the desktop, allows users to drag-and-drop files/folders/urls on to it, to create new favorite items in the launcher.

window-picker-applet: a space-conservative window-picker applet, which allows switching and closing windows from the panel.

maximus: a window-management daemon (makes sure windows are maximised etc)

human-netbook-theme: Human with panel themeing

ume-launcher: the desktop-launcher which takes the place of Nautilus. Replicates the functionality of Applications/Places/System, with added support for a user-defined favorites category.

(*new*) desktop-switcher: Allows easy desktop-mode switching between Netbook mode (launcher/special gnome-panel set-up) and Classic mode (Ubuntu 8.04 default set-up).
