Ubuntu Netbook Edition (UNE) is a derivative of Ubuntu that is made specifically for use on netbooks. Installation can be done using a USB drive. UNE sports a simplified user interface that is optimized for smaller screens.
Ubuntu's initial netbook offering was call Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) and is still commonly referred to as UNR. As of of the 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) release, UNR has been rebranded as Ubuntu Netbook Edition to reflect its official status and maturity.
