Any ideas what I can use my old netbook for? Right now it has XP. I thought about installing Mac OS X or Android x86 on it, but apparently both are still too broken to be usable. Don't care about linux.

Yeah good luck pal, better start learning how to write your own OS
>dog eat dog culture
you just had a bad day at some forums that aren't noob friendly
>lack of drivers
at least my GNU+Linux distro came with wifi-drivers out of the box. my windows desktop didn't even come with wired drivers out of the box.
>go google the vim command
just install ee and use that, nobody is forcing you to use the best editor right away
it sounds like you just hate GNU+Linux because you want to hate it. come with real arguments next time
I don't give a fuck about why you don't want linux.
You asked what should you installed and excluded your best bets (XP, Linux)
Literally what kind of recommends did you expect from people?
Obscure shit like BSD, even more obscure shit like Haiku, ReactorOS?
Or maybe a great text-based adventure like FreeDOS?
considering the age, there's probably BSD drivers for it by now.
but I think BSD is too scary for this kid, seeing as he's too afraid to use a GNU+Linux based system
his only reasons not to use GNU+Linux are shit too, so I don't really know what he's expecting
Guys I wasnt really asking for a new OS, although OS X and Android x86 were really interesting ideas. I just can't think of any reason to use this netbook because I already have a desktop and a tablet/laptop hybrid that's superior in every way except for being locked to windows 8.1.
I already have XP.
Theres no need to be so defensive man, it's just an OS. I dont have any interest in your linux because the design is too counter-intuitive.
>get's BTFOd on every argument he made
>d-dude you're being defensive!!
accept the best tool available for the job or don't even fucking bother
what are you doing on /g/ anyway if anything that's out of your windows comfort zone scares you
Linux is only good for C programming and git. But I never asked for the "best tool available for the job." I use my desktop for actual work. I'm just asking for ideas what I can use this netbook for. And all you're trying to do is turn this into some linux vs. windows debate which i have no interest in.
