Bottom line

At 15 points, Etch scored just below the lowest-ranked distro in my previous Thinkpad shoot-out — Freespire — which scored 16 points.

In addition, it seems likely that I'll find ways to solve those hardware problems, too (and without buying new PCMCIA cards), given a healthy dose of perseverance “and a little help from my friends.”
