UBUNTU netbook remix

I installed Ubuntu netbook remix on my wife's laptop(DELL 1420n) today and she hates it! Ginger(my wife) hates it but I love it, she uses ubuntu 8.10 with no modifications and she loves it. I was wondering if this is a woman thing or just that users don't like too much change? Ginger said she likes to start her computer and see her wallpaper without all the icons right up front in her face. I think it's very functional and has a layout that saves me time(I don't care about wallpaper) what do you think? If you haven't seen the netbook remix click here for a short gif video.

I think people just don't like change. They are used to a certain way of doing things, and especially on the computer. I own a netbook, and I don't think I could get used to that interface. I like a minimal interface, like openbox or even xfce4.

Nice post... Looks like flash memory is really starting to become more popular. Hopefully we'll start seeing a drop in solid-state drive prices real soon. Five dollar 32 gig Micro SD Cards for your DS flash card... imagine that!

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I can say with 99% certainty that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of transferring our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about all the time.
