The SD cards have gotten a lot of attention (which is great for the Ubuntu Eee project) and I have gotten the amazing AD revenue of $1.44 (which means I can buy myself half a liter of gas in Norway – that’s right, that’s the price over here ($10.6 per gallon), so stop complaining over there).

Now work begins on finalizing Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 and finding someone who prints stickers in this damn city.

3 clarifications

Will Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 be freely available or do I have to donate?

Donating is totally voluntary. Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 will be made available for download when it’s ready. If you do want to donate however, please visit

It would be cool if the SD cards were available in stores

Yes, I agree :) Tough I can’t see how the money would be split.

Are there any SD cards left?

Yes, only five people have donated $50 or more (thanks!). Go here to view our accounts live. My girlfriend and me are going to donate $50 each as well, which means there are three cards left in this first batch.

    Hey Jon, I run that site (4zale). I was curious what that page that you are linking to has to do with the Ubuntu EEE project or your sd cards?

    Alex Barger, thought I would drive some traffic over to you.

    I started out by installing ubuntu to a Sandisk extreme III 4GB card, and results weren’t the best of all.

    since the computer heats a lot, my card starts having I/O errors. If i use a usb card reader, everything works. If i put it in the eeepc slot and leave it there for more than one hour and start upgrading with synaptics… is starts failing

    Nuno Bettencourt, you’ll just have to try one of our cards then ;) And if you’re overclocking – maybe it helps if you don’t

    Jon, I have a question, how do you will send us the SD cards? There will be a installation option in case I want to put Ubuntu-eee on the SSD drive?

    Xenon, thanks for your interest :) we’re sending them out by mail in those envelopes for diskettes. And it Should be able to install – but as it isn’t ready, I can’t say for sure
