Re: Do you have a Pentium M CPU?
Stuff like this has interested me since I started using *buntu/Linux on an 800Mhz PIII in 2009. People say that using a light-weight distro is great for reviving old computers, but for how long? I started hearing that the kernel was getting cleaned up and some older hardware was getting phased out back then. Most people told me not to worry, that my PIII was still good for another 10 years or so, but it got me thinking. I guess one could still use an old kernel, but that would essentially negate the many, MANY improvements made in the newer versions that does not pertain to specific hardware. I'm glad to see that at least some thought is put to these issues.
