Yeh, like maybe another 3 years. I have a 770 running 2.2006.39.14 
(Sirocco). I don't do much with it except to run Canola which turns it 
into a really good mp3 player.

Question: Is there any advantage for me to upgrade the OS to the last 
that will run on this machine which I guess is the Hacker Edition?

Comment: If I were to upgrade to something newer I doubt it would be an 
810. The new ultra-portables with 9 inch screens are becoming available. 
They cost only a little more and will run a regular Linux distro.
