From Webmonkey:

The ever-growing popularity of diminutive, cheap laptops like the EeePC and its brethren have convinced Canonical, makers of Ubuntu Linux, to release a new “netbook remix” of Ubuntu optimized for such machines.

The Ubuntu netbook remix is being developed around two common elements of ultraportable laptops — limited screen size and Intel’s Atom processor.

Rather disappointingly the remix will not be available as a free download. Instead the plan is offer the system directly to manufacturers. The main reason there won’t be downloads available is that Canonical has licensed proprietary media codecs and other software like Adobe Flash.
