I prepared a presentation for Barcamp Antwerp last weekend called "Pimp My
Netbook", about the installation of Ubuntu 8.10 on an Acer Aspire One.
I didn't actually give the presentation, because I also took care of the
network that day (WDS was acting up a bit) and when that was finally
sorted out, all slots were taken. So there is no video of my presentation.

I'm a bit busy (exams Windows/WSH scripting and Linux/Bash scripting next
week) but probably next weekend I will put my presentation on Slideshare,
and the week after that I will put a series of articles on my blog to
explain the entire installation and all tweaks with lots of details.

I was planning to do the articles in Dutch only, but I am prepared to
write English versions too, if I can crowdsource this list as a
spelling&grammar checker. ;-)

I will send a message to this list when I have something online.

Kind regards,
