Old Netbook

I have an old bright red HP Atom netbook (dual core) and it came with Windows 7 starter and that is what I left on it (max ram was 2 or 4GB so you are stuck with a 32 bit OS).

Hacking Windows ME on it would have been fun but no dice.
 
I guess the OP has got caught up the Football tournament over there in Europe and has not had time to share the model info :ROFLMAO:

My HP Mini 110-3700 is a Single Core with Hyperthreading and 1 GB or RAM. It also came with Win 7 Starter but it is unusable. Linux runs fine.

No, i did watch some of the F1 grand prix, but it chaos. My four grandkids arrived. Twins, one of each gender age 6, a 7 year old boy and am 11 year old girl. Its definitely a single core with threading. I wonder which Linux you use...
 
I watched the FI race also. I was glad to see Hamilton get the win.

I run antiX Linux on most resource restricted machines. It is targeted toward old computers and uses Window Managers and custom scripts instead of a Desktop Environment. It helps to be a long time user of Pre-Windows operating systems (like DOS or UNIX) since it is not focused on matching modern interfaces commonly in use today. It's more of a Windows 9x, or Windows 3.1, experience out of the box. But once you start to understand how Linux is put together you can adjust to create your own interface and flavor. I just use the basic interface, which is a lot like the Win95 start menu. But antiX runs all the modern browsers and apps since it is based on Debian.

OK so I managed to escape from my grandkids long enough to snap the bottom label and Hardware Manager. It has 1gb or RAM and an Atom N270 CPU which is a single core multi-threaded CPU. NAFF by any standards.....

That processor is very similar to my N455. But it is lower power and does not support 64-bit. It also does not have an integrated GPU.

The 32-bit version of antiX or Debian should work fine. But make sure to use a Window Manager instead of the DE (like KDE or XFCE). (antiX defaults to IceWM, but Debian may default to KDE. I would use antiX) And antiX will run in memory even with only 1GB of RAM. It is remarkably light on RAM.
