have been installing debian buster on a eeepc1000h after upgrading it 
with a ssd a couple of weeks ago. since i wanted to use i3 i quit the 
installation process at the point where they give you their options of 
window-managers and did the rest by hand. wifi didn-t work out of the 
box, but there is a howto for it:


sc3 via IDE or emacs starts up fine and makes the obligatory 
{SinOsc.ar}.play-"beep" successfully (have-nt done more with it on that 
machine though).

tidalcycles needs about 30% cpu-power even when idle, so rather unusable.

since firefox is *very* slow on this machine i use falkon.

thunderbird is also a bit slow, but if you-re patient it-s ok :)

it-s a pity that sc3 doesn-t work without window-manager, as for this 
machine running sc3 via emacs from the console would be perfect:
