I upgraded this Cloudbook 1200 (a  sorry-a$$ slow and cheap netbook) last night from Jaunty to Karmic. I hope that you guys with rants against Karmic can learn a lesson or two. Here is my result so far:

Hardware:
1. CPU : VIA C7-M 1200MHz (1199.91 BogoMIPS)
2. RAM : 1 GB
3. HDD : 60 GB ATA-33 5200 rpm
(Really slow, ext4 filesystem did better job compare to ext3 here)
