I tested out Kubuntu on a USB stick for my Asus Aspire One. It actually runs smoothly, I'm guessing because I have 1 Gig of RAM. My question is how much space does Kubuntu take up after install and after I put in kubuntu-restricted-extras, w32codecs and that kind of stuff. The default apps will work fine for this net book as it is just a portable on the go thing and not my primary system. I ask because I only have 8gigs of hard drive space on a solid state drive. I'll only need about a gig for various files I might get and I can always just use a USB or flash drive for anything extra. I guess if it does take up too much space I can use the netbook remix but Kubuntu looks and runs beautifully on it and I'd like to use it if it is reasonable on the hard drive.
