Comment Re:Meanwhile, here in Europe ... (Score 1) 250

As a European living in Canada, I envy you... here I pay almost CA$150 for landline, HDTV (about 50 channels) with a PVR, and 30/10 internet with a 130GB cap.
Also in general we have only 2 choices of providers, offering about the same thing for the same price (lot of collusion here, same for gas price).

Do not start me on cellphone plan... almost the most expensive in the world.

A few years ago I wasn't able to log anymore because my login name was "Frédéric", I managed to log with Fr&#E9d&#E9ric or something like this, then after another update I was not able again, and I had to email the developper so they changed my login name in the database to Frederic54...

True I still use my HP MINI311, o/c to 2GHz, 3GB RAM, Mint17.3/Xfce runs pretty good on it, I am using it to develop on Atmel MEGA processor, it takes a few seconds to compile a 32KB program. It's for in-car apps so the netbook fornat is perfect.
And even if it's more than 6 years old, it has a dedicated NVidia GPU (ion) and can decode in HW any 1080p video, and output it on the HDMI port plugged on the 55" LCD TV.
However it's true that Chrome is a little bit slow and heavy sites like reddit with RES brings the CPU to its knees, but to edit/compile small C program on the go, it's wonderful.
