Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Two-thousand-and-ten is almost over. I've done more than my
share of distro-hopping this year, and not because of a fickle
character, but because of a curious streak.
"That curiosity is bent toward very low-end computers though,
and it's not enough to me to just show a pretty desktop at 150Mhz
if the overall experience feels like your head is being pressed
through a bowl of mashed potatoes.
"To that end, some distributions stick out in my mind more than
others this year, as good options for low-end machines. A few more
I tried are just good options, for any kind of machine.
"And some I mention because they are ingrained in my lifestyle
now. Maybe I didn't discover them this year, but in 2010, they
became essential to my workflow."
