Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Got myself a Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 a while back, for work. I travel from office to office and I use it to remote into my main desktop at homebase. The netbook came preloaded with Windows 7 Starter, which is fine for what I needed to do. I’m not a Linux expert. Far from it. But I recently ran the Windows Update, downloaded and installed Service Pack 1, and basically blew up my netbook. Hey, s#!t happens. Sooo, after I reloaded Windows 7, I decided to also install the Ubuntu Netbook. So I figured I write about my experiences with it here.
