How many people running PL on their Netbooks?

Just wanted to see if anyone else was running Point Linux on their Netbooks? I recently picked up an Acer Aspire One ZG5 A110 Netbook(cute little thing) and was going to run Ubuntu/GNOME 13.10 on it. Ran ok but ate up 206-249MB of RAM just to run the desktop. It only has 1GB(I'm going to max it out ...

Moving back to Point Linux.

Well, after about a month of playing with Ubuntu/GNOME(love the look of GNOME 3 and it works pretty well after you tweak it with Tweak Tools) I'm coming back to Point Linux because GNOME 3 isn't light enough(IMHO) for the little Acer Netbook I recently picked up. The DE was eating up 206-249MB of RA...

Re: Grub question after updating

I've never had to deal with installing Linux on a system with Windows(or OS-X for that matter) so I can't really say how it'd be installed. I only know that in my Point Linux/Ubuntu Gnome 3 Dual Boot install I put Point Linux on first on a totally formatted drive that was ext4 then install the Ubunt...

Re: Grub question after updating

During install root, i.e / goes in "sda1" and Grub goes in"sda", it's not really all that hard to figure out. If you have another op system on your computer then you need to format a section of your hard drive to ext4 and use that as sda1 and sda for the install.

Re: Chris Fisher/Linux Action Show.

Great news! I'll get some pop corn... :twisted: You should maybe hit the Jupiter Broadcasting web site and send Chris and e-mail. He just may have you on the show. A couple weeks ago he had Jos Poortvliet from the OpenSUSE project on and did an interview with him so I can't see any reason why he'd ...

Chris Fisher/Linux Action Show.

I've been "bugging" Chris over at the Linux Action Show(Jupiter Broadcasting) to do a review of Point Linux 2.2 for well over a month, every time I was in the chat room. I recently e-mailed him and got a reply that it's on his "short list" so with any luck we should see a review ...

Re: Category5 Studio Build.

Robbie is the one who turned me on to what a totally awesome Distro Point Linux is. If it wasn't for him I'm not sure what I'd be using but I know I'd probably not love it as much as PL. :)
