    initpidzero - we need a Discussion prefix! :p

    Anyways, I had a eeepc701 4g lying around for quite some time, not in use.

    Finally i installed the ubuntu netbook version 11. However it really really slows down this baby.

    Working on a solution,

    Downloading this -

    Download Peppermint | Peppermint OS

    Peppermint ice version.

    Aim - To give it a last lease of life on its revolutionary design.

    % completed - around 20%

    Will update further!

    allow me to say - 400 mb iso image, loaded in 2 minutes, currently installing.

    Runs chrome browser, and even allowed me to go multi tab on a celeron 900 or was it 630 mhz, and 512MB Ram!

    Oh, and I could browse Raid101 on it! :D
