I'm looking into the best Linux distribution for a netbook.
It's an upgraded Acer Aspire One D270 (Intel Atom N2600 1.6GHz, 3GB RAM, 750GB HD), which will be used mainly for daily tasks:
- web browsing,
- text editing,
- image editing, and
- a Skype call now and then.
I tried installing Linux Mint 18.1 XFCE, everything works fine but the general response seems a bit slow in general. Mint was my first choice just because I use it in my other machines already, but maybe someone could recommend me another distro that would suit the netbook better?
I've heard some of the lightweight versions of Ubuntu 16.04 could be good, but since Mint is based on Ubuntu I wonder if there would be much of a change at all.
