I just bought a used X60, with 4GB of RAM and a 480GB SSD, for 1030 RNB. The equivalent of about US$150 or 140 Euros. It definitely runs GNU/Linux (including ) and I'm hoping I can install on it.

I've spent a bit of time investigating what's involved in flashing the x60 with and sought some support from the community, who are very enthusiastic about it:

Today, I installed for the first time. They only release a 64-bit version that follows the (Free System Distribution Guidelines) so I've been waiting to own a 64-bit PC that doesn't need any proprietary blobs. Overall, the install experience was good, although IMHO the "password" advice is well out-of-date. There are a number of features I like, that the default Trisquel desktop doesn't have, like the feature. I've been looking for something like that for a while.


... and after running apt-get to install the first round of security updates and rebooting, dumps me in . Back to 8 for now.
