Re: Asus mini laptop

The eeepc 900 and 1000 were a later release with slightly more oomph. But no.matter what they sucked due due to their out of order execution atom processor. Oh, no doubt they are obsolete compared to modern computers. Nevertheless, It's fun to try to make old equipment work successfully with Linux....

Re: Asus mini laptop

I have an eeepc 900 with a 4GB ssd which I still use occasionally. It came with 512MB of ram. I've found that it runs very well with Puppy Linux. I increased the ram to 1GB and now run Peppermint OS and Lubuntu successfully. It's best to run those from an SDHC card or USB memory stick. I install tho...

Re: Lightweight Linux distros

I just put BunsenLabs Linux on a 10 year old low-spec. Compaq Presario, and it really flies. BL is a successor to CrunchBang and uses Debian with Openbox. It's easier to use than CrunchBang was and has a lot of extras added to OB.

Re: Sounds ominous for HP printer owners . . . . . . .

I wonder if the "firmware update" would include the HPLIP drivers for Linux? Otherwise, I never use the HP printer software.

We have a bartender? I thought it was just help-your-self!

Now where did that key to the wine cellar go?

Re: why gnome is so popular?

Well, Gnome is going to be even more popular now that Ubuntu is dropping Unity in favor of Gnome.

Re: THE MINT CAFE

Hi Scorp and Npap!

Npap, you're looking good! Have you found a youth elixir? If so, I can use some. :D

Scorp, if your avatar is your picture, all I can say is you must have had a hard life! :wink:

Happy Holidays to you and everyone on the Mint forum.

Re: THE MINT CAFE

It will be 10 years next week when I joined the Mint forum. Npap was here to give me a warm welcome. :) I started out using Mint 2.0 Barbara and have used more than half of the Mint editions since then. I've tried many different Linux distributions but I'm still using Mint as my main desktop, due to...

Re: THE MINT CAFE

I sold it to a 200 year old young lady in 2410 who installed MInt 86 on it and went to visit her ancestors in 2130. It was in great shape, only had 45,000 years on the ageometer.

Hi npap!

Glad to see you haven't lost your passion for good poetry. :)

I've been using Mint since 2006. We had some good times here in the early days!

Re: THE MINT CAFE

That reminds me of the first mouse I ever used. It was on an Apple Lisa at work, a very expensive machine. I had to call each time I want to use it to see if it was working, it was down so often!

Re: your opininons about pirated/illegally downloaded materi

Because you get paid for your work. -H That's totally unrelated. Do you really think that when I buy a car the company who build it is not paid for this? Does this mean that I cannot change something in the car after that? No. Except now the car companies want to make it illegal to make repairs on ...

Re: If not Mint, then...

Xubuntu, which I run on one of my computers, or perhaps Manjaro. I really like the way Xfce is going. Peppermint 5 is also very nice - I use it on a netbook.
