Ubuntu Netbook Edition (UNE), known as Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) prior to the release of Ubuntu 10.04, was a version of Ubuntu that had been optimized to enable it to work better on netbooks and other devices with small screens or with the Intel Atom CPU.

I have an old netbook – Toshiba NB200. All the attempts to use it with Debian 7 (oldstable – latest supported Debian distro) brings me into slowly worked system. So finally I have installed Ubuntu netbook on this NB200.
Beginning with version 10.10, Ubuntu Netbook Edition uses the Unity desktop as its desktop interface. The classic netbook interface was available in Ubuntu’s software repositories as an option.
Because Ubuntu’s desktop edition has moved to the same Unity interface as the netbook edition, starting with Ubuntu 11.04 the netbook edition has been merged into the desktop edition.
It also causes deleting .iso images of 10.04 UNE from Canonical servers. I also faced problem to use standard repo’s.
Here you can download 10.04 iso: pan.baidu.com/s/1gfGFLg3 (my Baidu cloud).
And below are actual repos for Ubuntu 10.04, just change with it contents of the file /etc/apt/sources.list:

The first thing i did after first time log in into system – I’ve installed LXDE – a good environment for old computers like my Intel Atom:

It also installs a lot of programs like Abi-word etc etc
So use the Lubuntu Software Center to remove applications you aren’t going to use.
and set Super_L into ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml:

to bind the windows key to Lubuntu start menu.
