One's Aspire One. Is it done?
My nephew has found my Mum's old Acer Aspire One. Which is barely used, as was the fate of many a netbook.
A quick bit of searching found that the OS hasn't been updated since 2009, the last viable Firefox it will run is 7, and Youtube block versions that old.
I haven't yet come across a forum for users of these things, though I suspect that more searching might do so. As I know they had lots of techy love, and techies like to keep old stuff going. I met an old friend last month, who is still using (with many eBay trips for spare parts) my old Sony Ericsson P800 (great phone), which I gave to him in about 2004/5. It was a very nice nostalgic feeling to play with the old thing.
Anyway, any quick thoughts on the best Linux to chuck on this to give it a new lease of life would be much appreciated. The nephew is 8. So if there's a version that replaces Linpus and gives a more limited UI that's easy to use - I'm very tempted.
Otherwise thoughts on whether to go Mint, some flavour of Ubuntu or whatever would be useful.
I last used UNIX in 1994, but I'm sure I can catch up.
Thankyou for your attention, please now return to your Friday afternoon beers.
