I have an inexpensive samsung netbook in india (technical details described here http://www.samsung.com/in/consumer/pc-p ... cification
-- basically atom N455 166 ghz, 250 gm hard drive 1 Gb ram)
What edition of linux should I install on it?
Based on what I have seen in the forums it seems that I should stick to say 10.04.2 (Lucid Lynx), and avoid 10.10 (Maverick Meekrat) since the fn keys for brightness seem to be having problems there. Should I take the netbook edition? How about Kubuntu vs. Ubuntu? Or should I consider an even older version of ubuntu? Any advice from experienced people appreciated.
