Bishop is a 32-bit Acer Aspire One mini-laptop ("netbook"), bought by Strypey in 2010.

Operating System

Bishop was sold as a dual-boot of Windows XP and Android. It has been tested with many variations of free code operating system , but as of early 2018, I'm running Trisquel 7 ("Belenos", GNOME Fallback desktop), and preparing to upgrade to Trisquel 8 ("Flidas, Mate desktop).
