What is the best netbook operating system for performance for a HP Mini 210?
Question by Tina /

I have a HP Mini 210 running Windows 7 and the performance is killing me.

I’m looking for a fast operating system that will support the HP Mini hardware without too much tweaking.

While I almost only use a browser on this device, I don’t want to go with a cloud-based operating system. I do want to learn a little more about Linux and keep my options open. Thus I find ChromeOS and Jolicloud are too restrictive.

I’m a Linux newbie and don’t want to spend hours, for example just to get the WiFi working. So I’m unsure which Linux edition to try. I hear that Ubuntu Netbook Edition and Linux Mint are great for performance. Any experience whether they work with this netbook or how can I find out beforehand? Should I look into any other operating systems?
