  2. [all variants] Re: please help, cpu frequency is all messed up!

    You could try to use a tool called Jupiter. There you can put de modes of the CPU in various states, e.g. powersaving full etc. I only don't know how well it is going to work with AMD.

    [ubuntu] Re: Should I replace LibreOffice with OpenOffice?

    Yeah abiword and gnumeric are great, but I tend to use Impress a lot as well (college slides). Therefore to have Openoffice + abiword + Gnumeric installed on a netbook is somewhat overkill.
