    Alternative Distros to Intel based distro


    Hi All
    Been having a look at distributions recently to test items such as performance and stability. So I have agreed on Ubuntu netbook remix on my acer aspire 1410, runs brilliantly and no problems what so ever have been seen, performance is far better then the Windows 7 OS that was installed by default.

    However I have been having problems finding alternatives to run on a non intel CPU system. Is there anything out there that is a good alternative to Ubuntu NR that will run on s non intel CPU?

    Thanks
    Phil

    Debian is really the way to go for alternate CPU architectures. They have official downloads for many different architectures.

    Downloading Debian CD/DVD images via HTTP/FTP

    I will have to look into that. I can run full on Ubuntu on it but I wanted to get a specific netbook version so I will give that ago.

    Thanks very much.

    There are lot netbook versions available. I would suggest you check Moblin and Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
