For most things I run an old IBM X40 which is like an under powered
netbook running Mint 9 LTS. I use this machine for Internet and I
keep expecting that it will become slow and generally unusable but it
does not seem to happen.
Anyway half way through the installation I thought what had I done?
New software usually means more resourses. To my surprise Libre Office
3.3 is at least twice as fast as the Open Office version I had.
