My 10v is a modest, capable little machine even if it does run too hot. Linux Mint LXDE convinced me that LXDE is the way I want my Linux on the 10v. But LM 9 LXDE had problems with sound and wireless on this netbook.

LM 9 LXDE left me to struggle with forum searches and I never did get my 10v's wireless to work.
