    To my amazement, I successfully installed Linux Mint 10 onto an old Asus EEE 701!


    Linux Mint with Gnome Desktop and IceWM window manager.

    Wow, I've seen cellphones with bigger displays than that! Wasn't that like the first class of netbook ever sold? Tech specs are 4GB SSD, 512MB RAM, 630MHz Celeron CPU.

    Not to start a flame war, but I think Ubuntu has the right idea, trying to make their user interface use as much screen real-estate as possible, and universal to all screen sizes. I see a computer like this, and I think, why would anyone ever want to waste pixels with window decorations, and dedicated menu bars and tab bars?

    Because, some of us have wives who aren't as computer savvy as you are...

    You think Ubuntu Unity is difficult for beginners to grasp? I suppose if they are used to Windows, putting menus in the panel rather than in the Window itself might be confusing, but my not-so-computer-savvy girlfriend could figure it out when she switched to the Mac. I haven't been able to convince my girlfriend to give Unity a try yet, though.

    Well, anyway, I am glad to see OS's with nice and varied user interfaces, like iOS, Mac OS, Android, and Ubuntu challenging traditional M$Windows-like systems with inventive new user interfaces. The more non-computer-experts start to realize that there is no one correct way to use a computer, the better off we all are.

    Linux Mint XFCE with terminal in the desktop. And yes, it's a working terminal. Every time I use it I think that is so cool. And then I think Wow I'm really a geek

    Looks good elija! I really love Mint too. This desktop looks very much like a RedHat 9, IceWM desktop I had back in the day...

    Can you point me to a HOWTO that explains how you got a working terminal as your desktop application? That is a really good idea! I always hated how you are forced to use a file browser for your desktop.
