Living Room / Re: amount of RAM in a netbook
« on: May 09, 2011, 07:01 AM »
Deozaan, I fear we misunderstood each other. My contention was that while most of the netbooks in question will choke on Win7, they will run quite adequately with, say, Ubuntu, which in my experience does everything Win7 can do (I'm running both on a fat laptop). I certainly didn't mean to suggest that Chromium OS will do everything Win7 can do ; from what I understand, that is not what the former OS was designed to do (not residing in the United States, I missed out on Google's offer to test Chrome OS on a dedicated netbook, so I must here appeal to lesefrüchte rather than to my own experience)....

Deozaan, I don't understand what you mean with your rather dismissive «... if all you want is basic web surfing or "web apps"». Pray tell what you can do with a Windows OS that requires both an advancerad processor and a great deal of RAM, that I can't do with, say, Ubuntu 11.04, which makes much fewer demands on hardware ?...

Techidave, run an up-to-date Linux distro on that netbook and you won't have to worry about either outdated OSs or insufficient RAM....

It's not easy for an ordinary user to find an adequate method for rating available anti-virus programmes ; we often end up using such methods as what seems to have worked - or perhaps even more frequently, what has not worked - for a colleague, friend, or acquaintance. Fortunately, more objective procedures can be employed with relatively little effort, for example, using a service which daily examines the proportion of newly discovered viruses that the various applications stop or fail to stop, respectively. One such service which I have found valuable is the Virus statistics (daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly) offered by the Shadow Server Foundation (http://www.shadowser....php?n=Main.HomePage). Worth looking at, when trying to determine which anti-virus programme to use....
