Re: Hello all

Most of us here don't care what OS the users on the forums use.  That's why we have:

Help & Support (Other)
If you have a Debian testing/unstable or other non-BunsenLabs support question, feel free to ask it here. We're a friendly bunch and welcome questions from users of all operating systems.

Personalities, hardware limitations (or lack of), WORK, level of competence all come into play when choosing an OS.

And besides, the way you got your point across was priceless.  wink

Welcome back. I think for your system settings would be recommended those lightweight distros BunsenLabs, antix, MX-16, LinuxBBQ or ArchLabs.

Hope you enjoy using your installed distro.

Regards!

Neither LinuxBBQ or ArchLabs would be a good fit for Marianne.  Those distros are for a different user audience.

Head-on-a-Stick (here), machinebacon (from #! and one of the creators of LinuxBBQ), etc.

I don't know the recommended specs, but have you tried elementary?

I absolutely love both of the mentioned distributions, they are awesome, but I run Arch [testing] and OpenBSD-current.

Re: Hello all

Oh I see. You think I want a windows clone?

I do not. Really I want something interesting that will run reasonably on my netbook.

I wish I could have something like Windows 3.1 maybe, that was my favourite and the first windows distribution that I used. I'd love to have a usable ms-dos style email system. I tried Yahoo in mutt and it's just all over the place!

I remember using 3.1 at work. They had games (solitare, networked hearts) blocked for the whole day except lunch hours (12-2pm) so we easily found a way around it by changing the .ini file settings. Ah, the old days!

I hate anything after XP.

I wonder if it could run Open Live Writer. I have been looking for a replacement for Windows Live Writer for years, I used to use it to write blog posts.

it's either AntiX, or build your DIY from a debian netinst iso, or leave the debianverse and look for greener grass on the other side of the fence (no, not win xp, but rather sth like puppy, gentoo slackware... i could go on and on. your requirements are so common, i'm sure you can find something).

Re: Hello all

I tried bodhi yesterday afternoon.

Unfortunately anything that is based on ubuntu is really painfully slow on my netbook. It took 10 minutes to boot into the live system. Then it was slow and unresponsive.

Also I don't know how Bodhi is meant to look, but on  my netbook it looked like an OS designed for a child. If that is how it really looks then it's not for me anyway. Maybe I have the mentality of a child but I stopped going to playgrounds when I was about 10 smile

Did you try out reactos? I have been meaning to give that a go myself, would love to read your opinion on it.

Re: Hello all

I just downloaded and tried reactos and I got (for the first time ever in linux!) a BSOD!

I didn't even think it possible.
