I've been using this program called Jupiter for a long time on my Asus EeePC. It seems to be the only way for me to control my CPU power management and get a long battery life. I recently installed Linux Mint 16 and it appears that Jupiter, along with a number of other programs that I used a lot, have been abandoned. I really need to be able to have decent power management.
I would like to try Linux on my Acer Revo 3600 (ION) in the hopes that it will perform better than Windows 7, which is extremely sluggish.
"All" I need it to do is:
Run Plex Media Server
Run LogMeIn (or VNC if necessary)
Be able to connect to my network over WiFi (with dongle)

on my Acer Revo 3610 (intel atom+nvdia ion),the kernel 3.12 just killed it.it runs to kernel panic just at booting time,and i managed to downgrade the machine but have no easy way to deliver the systemd journal log to somewhere.the kernel 3.12 may need more testing to safely upgrade.
I've got the latest Ubuntu (11.10) installed on my little Acer Revo. All the h/w works great, including HDMI output to my receiver (and subsequently TV). The problem is that it hiccups when playing music via RhythmBox. Sometimes for a 1/2 second, sometimes for 3-4 seconds at a time. The frequency is random, once every few songs or so.
