    If I remember right, their only giving to OEMs. Besides, it's only in a developmental stage. Did you try xubuntu?

    Hi There,

    yes, I tried xubuntu..but My laptop is very old and its bit slow on that too. I guess ubuntu MID makes perfect for web 2.0 applications and ajax browsing..

    somehow, i tried to convfer IMG -> ISO but it did not work at all.

    I have also tried using fluxbuntu ...but still bit prob. on web 2.0 websites and ajax application...but system is fast fluxbuntu though.

    You want only a *buntu distro?For an old laptop you can try DSL or Puppy Linux.Those distro are created for computer with low specs, so they might work better then an Ubuntu distro.

    I think *buntu and especially MID looks cool so, I like to go towards that. I might give a try DSL but I am more towards *buntu MID as I have UBUNTU 8.04 on my desktop.

    Of course everything is 'possible' but it may not be legal, and may take a lot of work.

    Anyway, how old is this laptop?
