Why can't you install Windows 10 Creators Update on your old Atom netbook? Because Intel stopped loving you

Good luck getting reliable support runing Linux on those obsolete silicons

Field Commander A9

The Chinese character for fat (胖) is made from a character for moon(月) on the left and a character for half(半) on the right. So you see when you really want to give that F.A.T feel or trying to avoid censorship, you can separate the character 胖 in to 2 characters 月 半 (lit. "moon half")

Re: What do it do?

Satellite recon is only good for stationary targets as it can only do a sweep every 8 hrs. Recon drones, on the other hand, can stay on station for much longer, but can be shot down by SM-6s... unless the drones are stealth too like the X-47B.
