Mint for me too
I managed Ubuntu 12.04 on three netbooks (ok slow Atom CPU and cheap graphics, but with 2G RAM each ) where Unity 2D was slow and the launcher wasted the limited screen estate.
Rather than jumping on 12.10, I decided, after many years using Ubuntu, to go Mint+Mate
the result is excellent - my users are delighted with the responsiveness.
I followed them and replaced distro on my own VMs.
So pleased I gave Mint a donation - the guys deserve it.
had for a week - just great
only pain ... MTP connection to the 64GB SDHC card with Mac OS X
all the rest is just flawless.
excellent reading device
excellent music player
excellent browser/mail/calendar client
very good camera
not too big at all to use, it's the rest of the phones that look like small toy things !!
Re: howto: trackpad and task switching ?
thanks Dotter - I am trying to understand if you can avoid using the touch screen for those basic tasks
and to Anon Coward ... I will once day try a hands-on on one of these ... but I'd like to understand sooner.
howto: trackpad and task switching ?
Having never used and ICS hybrid tablet:
1) With ICS, do you get a pointer which you can use to click on controls and select text
when using the trackpad ?
2) to switch say from web browsing to email
do you do something like alt-tab ?
if he two task above are not awkward,
then I'm tempted to get one !!
KOBO touches are £99.99
WHSmith are offering £10 off the KOBOs - voucher in store or just use the right code when ordering online,
at just £10 more than the kindle, the ability to use multiple stores won for me
even though I buy lots of other stuff fro amazon.
see The Science of Fear
spot on. This reminded me of Daniel Gardner's super book "The Science of Fear"
pharma companies in the US cannot advertise but they can support studies, awareness campaigns etc, ... and often there is a solution for any new scares :-)
