Yes, you should install Peppermint Os in your netbook.
I have a atom netbook and runs great Peppermint Os.
So...No problem. Enjoy!

Software & Applications / Kernel updates (SOLVED)
« on: October 11, 2016, 12:01:12 pm »
Hi, friends!
I read the Ptjor guide: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/first-peppermint

And he says:
Quote
I advise to disable updates for the kernel, so that a new kernel can only be installed when you consciously choose to do so. The kernel is simply too important to replace it in an automatic way.....

Some of the cases in which this can be a lifesaver are, for example, when you've manually installed a driver which would become unusable in a newer kernel. Or when you're a system administrator for remote computers.

But there are more potential situations in which "automatic" kernel updates are unwanted. Disabling them helps to ensure long-term stability and reliability.

This is true?
I always installed the automatic kernel updates and no problems.
Cheers.

 Hard question.
Virtualbox isolates programs and virus, but i don't no. :-\ If you have shared folders...maybe the risk is higher.

Free and legal games outside Peppermint’s Software Repositories.

Thanks.

GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: Your opinion on DEs and WMs
« on: August 25, 2016, 12:05:48 pm »
Hi, Elemec.
I like xfce desktop and XFWN window manager. I am a huge fan of the xfce desktop. It's very lightweight, and if you spend the time you can make some very attractive desktops to work with.
Kde, Mate, Flubox, openbox...I don't no. I never used them. Only xfce and now...Lxde on Peppermint 7 and i love it!
Cheers.

Hi, Alynur.
Apparmor is safe to remove.
On Fedora you have SElinux (almost the same thing)
PCNetSpec have knowledge of linux.
Don't worry.  ;)
