    Ubuntu MID is a late hardy release of some of the packages that
are part of the ubuntu-mobile seed, along with images built therefrom,
for which Canonical was willing to allocate a temporary alternate
archive location.  From intrepid, it is expected that the regular
Ubuntu schedule can be met, and that ubuntu-mobile will be just
another flavour of Ubuntu, although it is likely to continue to have
USB install images, rather than ISO images, as most devices of the
target class do not have optical drives.

    Netbook Remix is a separate remix of Ubuntu, based on some of the
same technologies used in Ubuntu MID, and is essentially external to
Ubuntu itself, although derivative.  The relationship between Netbook
Remix and Ubuntu has been more clearly explained elsewhere (1).
