Ubuntu Command Line Only Installation

Spent some time today installing a barebones (ie. no desktop) version of Ubuntu on an old Acer Aspire One netbook.  Feels weird to refer to it as old, as it was only a few years ago that netbooks were hot as anything.  Of course then Microsoft felt the need to spread their OS virus onto all the Linux netbooks.  The rest is history--no one uses netbooks anymore.  So I guess Microsoft won, and lost. 

Pretty silly to imagine running Windows on a netbook....

Notes to self:
  1. I used Unetbootin and the Ubuntu Minimal Install iso image.
  2. Installed only the basic command line stuff
  3. Now to add CLISP and a few other things....
