Re: (resolved)moving home folder

Thanks for the help on moving /home. The little computer was working hard when Firefox was opened instead of messing with a swap partition I decided on Zram , it's not working quite as hard now, not the i/o problem I was having before but the CPU is working harder. I'll know more as I play with it. ...

Re: Windows 10 to be free upgarde

What happens if you should need to re-install Windows 10 some time down the road after the free upgrade? - My guess is that after a year you would have to buy it. I was wondering the same thing.

Re: Linux Mint 17 Distro for Netbook?

I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 KDE on mine [see below] probably runs about the same as what you got. but 17.1 Mate would be lighter on your system.


If they have xfce it would be best.

Re: linux mint slower that xp in the same computer

- KDE is even more demanding than Windows 7 When will people stop spreading this FUD on KDE. :| The defaults are demanding, but it can be configured to be just as light as XFCE or similar.
