Comment Re:Netbooks are gone? (Score 2) 243

My Acer Aspire One AOA150 is real netbook - Atom N270, 1GB RAM, 1024x600 screen, 120 GB HDD. Cost me $400 back in September, 2008. Not exactly cheap at the time. My HP Stream 11 is a netbook too (I think) - Celeron N2840, 2GB RAM, 1366x768 screen, 32 GB eMMC. Cost me $179 a year and a half ago plus another $20 for a 64 GB mini flash drive. That I'd call that cheap.

Comment Re:there is no Korora 25 ISO for you (Score 2) 31

Quite frankly, it's morethan a little arrogant to claim that it is almost inexcusable for someone to be using a 32-bit only CPU in 2016. WTF am I supposed to do with my (admittedly ancient) Acer Aspire One ZG5 netbook? The 120 GB HDD is basically 4x the capacity of the eMMC in my HP Stream 11. And, that 120GB HDD multiboots Win XP, Fedora Mate Rawhide, and Ubuntu Mate 16.04. I happen to prefer Mate to XFCE and LXDE, but those DEs also run just fine. With only 1GB of non-expandable RAM, the ZG5 is somewhat limited in its capabilities. However, as a netbook. I find it adequate.
