Mint on a netbook

Postby crouton351 » Wed Feb 10, 2010 5:52 pm

I'll be getting a netbook soon; will there be any problems with putting Mint on it? I would be dual booting windows 7 and Mint. This should work right?

You shouldn't have a problem running Mint on most netbooks, see this:

To maximize available work space on a small screen you might want to try this:

It's quick and easy and significantly increases available space.
