Linux Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" was released a little while ago, so before it became too old of news, I thought I'd take a whack at experimenting with it for the sake of netbookers everywhere (and for myself, naturally). As I type this on gedit after about two weeks' use, let's just say that the system on my EeePC 1000 HE is, for the most part, rather glorious-- pun intended. As a bonus, I also got Google's Chromium browser to run on it, so keep on reading to find the section on that.

HP 2140 Linux Mint

I use Mint on an hp 2140 netbook and it all worked right out of the box. I installed it using a USB CD and have it installed to an SD card, as I have OSX as my main HD in this unit. It works really well off my 16GB class 4 card. I want to see how much faster it is on a class 6. If I didn't use this machine as my main machine and use so much of OSX, I'd use Mint. I may use it to do some java development, as OSX and eclipse seems slower than mint and eclipse from the SD card (which doesn't seem right now, does it?)
