I take it you've read the title of this topic ? .. Netbook, not Notebook .. I haven't tried SolusOS, but I'm gonna guess if it uses the full gnome desktop it's gonna be too heavy for some/most netbooks
Maybe I'm wrong .. what's its memory footprint immediately after booting to the desktop ?
Actually that would be an interesting "project" .. getting the memory footprint of different distros immediately after installing (ie. with the default configuration).
Though I don't suppose even that is a true indicator of perfomance or netbook suitability .. I'd expect distros like SliTaz to appear to have a larger than average memory footprint due to the fact it ALL loads into RAM, yet that will make it seriously quick (once booted).
