    New Computer Ubunting Away

    Shortly before this was written, I broke up with my fiancee, and have been female-free since.

    UEFI Drove Me Home... to Puppy

    BTW, my cheap Chinese tablet (HKC w 1 MB RAM and 16 MB total plus SDcard, one of two models basically the same) offers no information or support... but is still running well despite a bit of hard use (corner of the glass got cracked, sealed it with glue and covered it with tape, no harm no foul). Hard to recommend a single-core tablet but it runs and keeps running. Price was $169 at Fingerhut.

    Catching up

    Qimo kept losing files (mostly its own drivers), don't know why. The old Vaio couldn't keep up. Her school bought her a desktop computer. As just stated on a comment to another post, I'm trying to fix my ASUS Eee PC for her use. I have also just bought her a tablet PC for Yule.

    Moving on

    The ASUS EeePC 1215P (Seashell Edition) ran beautifully for just barely over 2 years. I have now taken it to a shop to see if it can be repaired -- the video went out on it. I turn it on, and the right 2/3 of the screen is a black bar, the rest is white with various-colored thin lines on it, some flashing on and off, and the boot sequence ends right there. It was a really good machine for me, and if it can be fixed I will give it to my daughter.

    Still a N00b

    I stopped using Ubuntu when they introduced Unity. The desktop needed drivers which were not available for my computer, and yes, I could select other desktops, but at least for the first two versions with Unity you had to install Unity FIRST and then change desktops.

    I've tried a few others. I'm currently in love with Precise Puppy 5.7.1.

    Has anyone found a decent word processor yet?

    The answer is SoftMaker Office, aka Ashampoo Office aka FreeOffice. Softmaker is cheap (they make their money selling fonts, so it's a little light in font selection out of the box), older versions are free, support is great, and it is MORE compatible with Word than any other WordProc/Spreadsheet/etc. out there (IF you save your files .DOC or .DOCX).

    UEFI Drove Me Home... to Puppy

    I wish to add that ASUS has refused to send me an installation disk or be of any further help, so I'm not going back to Windows 8... might find someone willing to put 7 on it and then keep using Puppy.
