Pardon me, but even openSUSE 11.1 runs fine on my computer, which is
year 2000 vintage.
Yeah, he missed my whole point about having better than a netbook for
LESS $$ than a netbook. I use this Thinkpad A22p P3/1Ghz/256MB/250GB
machine on a daily basis. It's 1600x1200 15" screen is amazing
crisp(but not as bright tho), and it does all my normal web browsing
tasks, plays movies, etc just fine. And, since it's a 4x3 screen, I
can actually read more text. Other than needing to get it a new
battery, I've got about $175 in it with the 250GB drive.
I've personally NEVER purcahsed a brand new fully built computer. I
did spend a bit a while back to build a celeron e1200 that's
overclocked @ 3.2Ghz right now, has 2GB RAM, and an nVidia 6200(had an
X300, but that died....). I used an old case, and it does everything
I need it to do.
I'm not made of money. I see little reason to buy new when my
refurbished machines do what I need to do.
What Brian is talking about is the bigger better thing deal, and
that's what M$ wants us to do with WinDoZe. With Linux, I have the
freedom to run my old 486 machine if I want, as long as I understand
the limitations. The only thing my Thinkpads (the P3s) don't do is
play HD, and I could care less about that. I have a 50" HD TV for
I didn't miss anything about netbook functionality.
Run a netbook class os on a netbook class device.
And if you don't want bigger and better, then why doesn't that apply
Run opensuse 10, 9, or 8 if 11 doesn't work on some old hardware.
If it does run ok on something from 2000 as the other person who
missed the point that 2002 was just an example, well fine that's
I don't see the problem.
