Loaded Lubuntu On An Old Netbook

I loaded Lubuntu on this old netbook just to see if I can bring this machine back to life and so far so good.

It’s fun trying something new for me.

Still need to figure out how to get email to work.



It’s definitely different than windows

Are you trying to use Thunderbird ?

x86 is unfortunately an evil platform now.

Not so different that I can’t figure it out.

I haven’t used Thunderbird for years. I was trying to set up email using my gmail account.

I’ll try again tomorrow.

I loaded the 32 bit version so I guess I have the evil version.

It was fun resurrecting this old puppy!

BTW this is an Acer Aspire…

I’m kind of pleased that an old fart like me was able to pull this off. Yay, for me!
