Although the Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) distro is already optimized for use on netbooks, there are a few things you can tweak to make the system even more efficient. The MakeTechEasier blog offers 13 tips that improve UNR usability, from simple tweaks like hiding the date to freeing some screen estate to installing PowerTop to get more battery life. Some of these tweaks have been covered in this very blog (e.g., using syndaemon to disable the touchpad while typing), but there are a few other useful tips that deserve a closer look. Many of the described tweaks are not limited to UNR and netbooks, so if you are running an Ubuntu derivative on a notebook you might still want to check out the blog post.
