HP Mini 1000: “Upgrade MiE to Ubuntu 8.10?”

by on Feb.27, 2009, under Technology

Me to HP:

I’ve noticed the MiE OS is built on Ubuntu 8.04. Are there plans to upgrade it to 8.10? If not, what about plans to upgrade Firefox from 3.04 to 3.06?

HP to Me:

Hello SLeepdepD,

Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.

I gather from your email that you would like to know whether there are any upgrade plans from Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10 and Firefox from 3.04 to 3.06.

I also see that you are unable to configure your email account and the screen says “Mail – Not Configured” even though you have configured it.

SLeepdepD, regarding the issue with configuring the email account on your netbook, I request you to give us some time so that we will try to configure the email account in our lab systems and will get back to you with the next steps.

I would like to inform you that currently there are no upgrade plans to upgrade Ubuntu or Firefox in (MIE) Mobile Internet Experience.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist you further.
