Smile Ubuntu 12.10 - 01-03-2013, 01:30 PM

I have been running Ubuntu 12.10 with no problems since November of 2012. I have found no problems running it on my Dell Mini 9. I have 2 GB of memory and a 32 GB SSD.

Hi Bob,
I have few questions if you don't mind,
1) How long does booting take?
2) What is the overall performance?
3) How is the battery consumption?

Thanks Bob.

Boot time is about 40 seconds.

When I run a Linux program called "System Monitor" it looks like both processors are
running at about 15% on the average when the netbook is sitting idle.

The battery consumption seems ok, but I really haven monitored it.

I'm monitoring the battery consumption today. I'll get back to you.
