"I've mentioned several times that I have tried it, very
briefly, on the HP Mini-Note, and the VIA CPU and Graphic adapter
caused it to be unusably slow. Now that I have a very "standard"
Intel Atom-based system, on which it should work well, I can
hopefully give it a fair chance.
"So, I have downloaded the latest UNR 9.04 .img file, and copied
it to a USB thumb drive. I then booted the nettop from that drive.
The first thing that is really obvious is that the performance is
much more "normal", so it appears that my assumption about it being
slow on the VIA chips was correct."
