No, much besterer, and maybe even useful:
You know my ultra small form factor fetish and that I hardly can resist blogging any of those machines when I stumble upon one, right? Well, traditionally quirky industrial computers maker Shuttle has a nice new model out. All groovy n shit … but with the chips on offer they seem to be a bit on the weak/slow side. Both my mini Lennies would run circles around the DS10U. But then again did you see the price? 239/265 Woolongs is a word and much cheaper than even my second hand Lenovos, and they’d make a terrific little machine to stuff your first Linux Mint on!
That … or forget about being sexy and just get some shitbox from the local goodwill store and use that one. Only one thing should be clear for everybody: Don’t use your Windows computer for your Linux experiments! Dual booting gives you problems you won’t need. Even old master Linuxer Eznix confirmed that as fact in his latest video.
