A distribution of Linux for a weak netbook?

Have netbook eMachines 250 (n270 Atom 1.6 GHz 512 cache, Intel GMA950, 2gb 667mhz DDR2, 250 gb HDD).

Windows 7 works so-so (with a large number of installed software a very long time to boot and time to think at work). Windows 8 is fast but not very stable (ie Wi-Fi falls off, then something else).

Want Linux. Now is Ubuntu 12.04 + Gnome3. Works on Windows 7, thinks for a long time, sometimes freezes for a few minutes on complex tasks.

I watched the other distros like OpenSUSE have lower requirements for iron, and Minta, too (compared to bubuntu).

What tasks performs my netbook: a lot a lot watching videos (torrents TV shows in 480p and below, watch via VLC — brake himself there is no video, you can not say about 7-8 Windows. There are rare freezes). + a set of simple forms in Writer e, + work with simple tables in Calc'e + sometimes easy processing\\converting\\photo viewer. + want to use Wi-Fi through mobile hotspot.

In Ubuntu I like the app center — mega convenient. But with the console also love pokovyryatsya (with Google, of course)...


Lord Linux users help to convert my brakes in a safe nimble fighter =) what distro is best for low-power machines?

I think I will be able to help you a hundred percent, because at the very for travel exactly the same model of netbook* Tried it many different linux distros / LinuxMint perfectly formed 10 — of course I understand that now there are already the twelfth version, BUT I have after the upgrade started out brakes! So did a rollback and use the tenth version LinuxMint. Speed — consider how Windows XP and even faster [on a netbook also tried to put a native image of Windows XP (everything works fine but the system doesn't like, so I put LinuxMint 10)] Iron works all from under the box + a Windows like interface, the screen, everything fits quite well (just a little will have to reduce the size of the fonts).

Ubuntu 10.04 or Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix. LTE so will be supported for a long time. Smartly works on much weaker hardware.

I think Windows XP supports more software and is faster than Linux, provided you disable unnecessary services, themes and simple configuration. Once yuzal XP on a computer with 512 MB of memory, while it was running Opera with lots of tabs, photoshop, total commander, player, anything else and it worked, and Linux on the same hardware stuttered, slowed down when using the GUI (except in the command line to work).

Windows 2000 has less memory, but I don't like about her, first slow loading (acrivastine), and secondly, not very good compatibility with the software.

I have a feeling that, among Linux developers decided not to worry about performance, where no one cares. While Microsoft has special people to test the system on different configurations of hardware and handing out kicks to the developers.
