Hey, so like 10 years ago, all I had was an EEE PC with a tiny 9-inch screen, and I played around with a LOT of different distros to find one that worked best for me. My all-time favorite for netbooks was Moblin because it had a cute interface that worked amazingly well for a netbook (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist), followed closely by Kubuntu Netbook Edition (distrowatch.com/weekly.php?iss). A runner-up was Joli OS which was also fun but different (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist). All of those projects are discontinued now, and the old ISOs are nearly 10 years out of date...

Is there any modern OS for small screens that has a similar feel to Moblin or KNE? I've been wanting something simple and nice for netbooks, but none of my web searches turn up anything similar... Peppermint OS is almost good, with its site-specific browser, but it's not quite right (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist).

I wish I was skilled enough to revive and update Moblin or something, but I'm lightyears away from that.


Also, shout out to Puppy Linux, because that's my all-time favorite distro that I would never use full time (distrowatch.com/table.php?dist). It runs exclusively in the RAM, and it's very fast and cute and good.
