PATA and Netbooks

My Dell Mini 9 has the same PATA interface, so it seems like it was all the rage during the netbook days.

Between that and 32-bit Atom processors, I'm afraid mine is reaching the limit of its usefulness. Mine's relegated to console and framebuffer apps. Kudos on getting yours running Chromium!

Re; PATA and Netbooks

I hear ya on extending the lives of these devices nowadays, but with OpenBSD and Fluxbox, along with the SSD and adapter, it's surprisingly useful! Firefox won't build on OpenBSD/x86 (it segfaults since it needs more memory) so they won't be including it any longer. SeaMonkey is still available, but not sure for how much longer.
