    Not Linux, but I use OpenBSD under an old Atom N270 netbook
    with:

    - cwm
    - tmux
    - mpv+yt-dlp
    - sfeed
    - nsxiv cli tools
    - mednafen/nethack/slashem/nfrotz
    - catgirl
    - bitlbee and
    - lynx/links.

    For cursed JS sites I use luakit.
    Specs:

    \- -/ os OpenBSD 7.1
    \_/ \ host 0493200000001C00000300000
    | O O | uptime 9h 47m
    |_ < ) 3 ) pkgs 441
    / \ / memory 615M / 1015M
    /-_____-\


    Most resources are being used by Links -g rendering a huge page
    but fast as hell.
    With the previous OSes (XP or 7 starter), the netbook would be a doorstopper.

    -- Unix junkie --

    Pretty awesome setup. Never heard or seen OpenBSD on an Atom!
