Toshiba Netbook NB255
« on: March 09, 2018, 02:25:29 pm »
The original W7 starter was OK but slow. 
Upgrade to W10 made it excruciatingly slow.
Linux Lite worked OK, but I find Peppermint 8 better designed for the way I work. Changing the HDD to an SSD has also improved the speed.


ONE BIG Proviso to note: The desktop area on the NB255 is limited, so much so that the install screens show the Back and Cancel buttons, but the Continue button is off screen and not scrollable to.  This prevented from doing anything with the partition manager and I just had to trust that the Enter key would take me onto Continue, which it did.  This problem also occurs in use with the Peppermint control panel.  I hope that can be fixed.
