A Netbook in 2021
April 17, 2021
As everyone knows, I am a huge fan of Linux for many applications. I have a number of Linux-based servers running, I have been using different Linux dervates for work and privately in virtual machines, but until recently, I did not have a desktop system with Linux. I have been missing that every once in a while. Some things, such as network administration and software development are just so much easier on Linux. I did not want to spend much money on an additional machine though, especially since my daily driver will remain on Windows, for family reasons. I thus settled on a netbook. Yes, one of these small screen devices popular in the early 2000s. I figured that it should offer sufficient performance for my use cases, while remaining portable and cheap. Of course, I went with an Arch Linux installation.
