Hi, At my house I have ubuntu 16.04 running on an Intel VIIV. It isn't that slow, but i'm surprised that it still works today, even on Ubuntu 16.04

What CPU does that correspond to? I remember Intel VIIV, but I thought it was like Centrino in that it represents a set of hardware (like I have a Core 2 Duo Centrino laptop, which means it had a midrange Intel CPU and Intel WiFi).

Regardless, that's still pretty cool! I've been impressed with Core 2 Duo-era machines' longevity.

This use to be on Windows XP, but then my dad got rid of Windows XP, got his GF Windows 7, (now 10), and replaced XP with Ubuntu 12.04
