Asus eeePC 2GB Surf Re-Do with new Linux OS What Works Best
So I have an old 2GB Surf because I'm an early adapter and the installed distro was quick but pretty much useless. Experimented with different configurations and software.
Booting from USB and SD card was slow. Only found Leeenux, Siltaz, and Wary Puppeee fit on 2GB SSD. Leenux was hard to manage and not all that swift. Siltaz looked good and was quick but hard to manage. Also tried Android but problems with shut down and some other issues sadly ended that quest. The winner was Wary Puppy. Installer works fairly well, best of the bunch (not as good as full Ubuntu) but did the job.
Wary Puppeee boots slower than original distro but OK and has SeaMonkey as browser and you can install Flash. Although the CPU and Graphics make video jumpy, it still gives you a flavor and there are other flash apps like forms that I don't want to lose. Wary pupeee is user kind, hesitate to say friendly but things are somewhat intuitive.
So the old eeePC surf will probably go back in the drawer but it is good for a back up and fun to see what a minimal computer will do.
