Hi from a n00b in Brighton, UK

I've just installed #! on my Dell Mini9 netbook. I removed WinXP immediately and went to Ubuntu with a 'netbook remix' distro, then I went to Jolicloud which had potential but had lots of authentication bugs. Back to Ubuntu and now #!

I'm actually running this off USB/Live... not even sure how to install it yet... but, fingers crossed you'll see me back here. I'm a big fan of minimalism and doing more with less so '#! lite' looks like a good distro for me.

Fingers crossed for the install...

good to be here

m.

May I add my welcome to those already posted and offer a tidbit to you -- CB Lite runs circles around other distos I've used these many months, making my older, smaller netbook seem more than it is.  Here's hoping the same for you!  wink

Hi All

Thanks for your kind welcomes. I've managed to get #! installed it's working pretty well, not problems so far except Flash playback (very jerky on iPlayer and YouTube). I'm assuming this is because I have a low powered machine and Flash is doing software rather than hardware decoding, I'm going to try some HTML5 video sites now to test that particular theory.

Yep... it's running nicely. I'll add my system details to my sig. I think.

Thanks again all... good to be here. Hope to hang around a learn a bit from what looks like an excellent community.
