Quote from: Hedon James on April 08, 2022, 12:29:57 PMI'd put AntiX on it.
Quote from: raymac46 on April 08, 2022, 01:05:39 PMI don't think I could have said it better than HJ has here. AntiX may in fact be your only good choice for a distro on that Acer Aspire One.
Quote from: raymac46 on April 09, 2022, 12:29:54 PMI have played around with Bodhi Linux and it's OK. Its 32 bit version is based on an older version of Ubuntu since that distro had dropped 32 bit support. But thanks for suggesting it. Bodhi does have the advantage of using a lightweight browser (Midori I think) as a standard software adddition.
Quote from: Forlorn on April 09, 2022, 05:24:50 PMI installed AntiX and played around with it for awhile this morning. It runs smooth and relatively fast. Nobody ever accused a Netbook of being fast, but with AntiX it's at least as fast or maybe even a little faster than it was with the XP that came with it. It just might keep this thing out of the landfill for a few more years.

I've never used Sea Monkey and Rox-Filer's habit of constantly resizing the window is driving me crazyThanks for also pointing me to Bunsen Labs, I'll take a look at that when I get a chance.
