http://ubuntuforums.org – greetings all! long time no see! i need to put ubuntu on my netbook so i can tinker with it at work. i've started android app development as a side project from my regular job here in the shipping department. i came up with a sweet idea for an app that would streamline my whole department and the way we work. last time i had ubuntu on my netbook was with version 11.04 and it was slower than molasses in january. i'd like to put ubuntu back on there because for the life of me, i CANNOT get the android sdk to install correctly on my windows OS. however... i don't want to run unity in all its s (Hardware)
