Default Ubuntu installation

Now I have the option for Ubuntu or Windows. If I install Ubunto for notebook I will have three options and partitions or it will be installed over the desktop version?

No need to re-install, just boot into 10.10 and install ubuntu-netbook

(using synaptic or whatever you prefer) and that will give you the

option of using UNE on the login screen.

Afonso,

Ubuntu for NETbooks is mainly a desktop environment (Unity) like Gnome
or KDE, but optimized for smaller screens, thus NETbooks and not
NOTEbooks. It won't appear at Grub screen. You'll probably have the
option to enable it at login screen, or go back to Gnome if you don't
like the Unity screen. It is said that Unity could be the standard
graphic environment in the next Ubuntu release.

Please do not top post when addressing to this list.

Gracias,

Lucio

If you install ubuntu-netbook as I described all you are doing is
installing the extra bits for the UNE GUI. The rest of your Ubuntu
system will still be there. When you boot you will still have Win and
Ubuntu. Choose Ubuntu, then at the *login* screen you will be able to
choose which interface (classic or netbook) you wish to use today.
You can switch between them just by logging out and in again and all
your existing apps and data will not be affected.
