The first SD cards have been shipped (thanks Lars for helping me out) and I just ordered 50 more. The cards will arrive early next week and I will ship them continuously. Some people have been waiting for their card for a long time. The earliest contributors get their card first – of course. About 30 people have donated over $50. That contributors can get a Plug and Play Ubuntu Eee card will be announced on when the queue is starting to come to an end.

Some few people might experience trouble booting from the SD card, that’s because Ubuntu Eee on the card thinks it’s the the second storage media. So if a memory stick or external hard drive is plugged in, it doesn’t understand where it is :p Here’s the fix

    I am keen to use ubuntu with my 901 eee, but am a linux newbie. I’d like to subscribe to the project. If I make a donation of $50US, when could I expect to receive my SD card? I am in NZ. Does the card come with idiot proof instructions?

    michael, please be aware that you don’t HAVE to have Plug and Play memory card. Ubuntu Eee is free. I just don’t want you to feel fooled.. The memory card should be easier though, as there’s on installation needed. I just got 26 more cards yesterday and will ship continuously. I guess postage takes about a week to NZ. So you’ll probably have it in a two weeks time.
    I also want to make it clear that it’s possible to donate over $50 if you want ;)
