Update to Mini 9 Odyssy

Posted 12-30-2008 at 10:29 AM by PresGas

Well, after a pleasant holiday and a car accident on X-mass night, I am recovered enough to post a continuation of my Mini 9 observations.

Thanks to the helpful commentary of Hangdog42, I discerned that the wireless drivers that I mentioned were the same. I still completely freeze in our university environment which is 802.11g wpa2-enterprise, but am fine on my wep 802.11b router. I had one complete freeze on another test wpa2-personal 802.11g router, but I was not able to reproduce it since.

The resolution is, in fact 1024x600...I lied earlier...whoops!

In my typical usage, I really enjoy XFCE on these netbooks over the Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I guess I am just enough of a power user that I am not getting what I need from the Remix. It is passable for watching youtube/hulu with some frame skip, but I would not make a habit of using it as your multimedia device. And for the love of $DEITY plug it in when playing movies!

Overall, I really enjoy this little guy for light tasks.
