    Hey Mike!

    This might be more what you were thinking about as far as Atoms are concerned (SYS-1017A-MP);

    ----- '<Esc>:read !uname -a' starts
    Linux lilmikey 4.15.2 #1 SMP Mon Feb 12 13:32:39 UTC 2018 x86_64 Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N2800 @ 1.86GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
    ----- '<Esc>:read !uname -a' ends

    I use it as a headless wireless/internet router although it can function as a lowpower consumption desktop if one were inclined to do so. Personally I don't
    have much use for desktops. I just built and installed the 4.15.2 as you can tell by it's datetime stamp. I also upgraded glibc and gcc while I was at it.

    Seems to work. This message originated from there and was transferred to the node via a wired network connection using scp. I think it deserves it's own Fidonet node. Anyhow, Linux doesn't seem to have any big issues with Intel Atoms that I can tell.

    Life is good,
    Maurice

    ... Don't cry for me I have vi.
