Once I customize the look and feel Trisquel 8 becomes a very pretty and stable Desktop.
Just performed updates to this seven year old netbook and still impressed the amount of work that is possible with an archaic piece of netbook hardware. It was worthless as a Windows PC when my father picked it up new at Costco. However, as soon as he abandoned this thing to a closet I dropped in a new battery and it’s been my third string system.
I’ve ran Xubuntu, Manjaro and Peppermint OS on this system eventually sticking to Trisquel 7 so I would have a free software system in the house. To get wifi working I use a USB dongle from Think Penguin.
