I have been looking around and am unsure what type of games would run well on a Netbook. It's a Gateway with 2GB Ram and the 1.6GHz Nano. I'm running UNE 10.0 (newest).

So what's stopping you from loading a few and seeing how they work?

I can't imagine a whole lot out there that isn't going to work.

I've looked through the repository and whatnot. I'm just wondering if there are any I missed or popular games that work well with Netbook.

it's not a matter of working with a netbook and there's really nothing I can think of that has a system requirement like we'll see with DX games.

There's some games that'll require OpenGL acceleration, but that's no specific to a netbook.

Alright. I just thought it would be worth it to ask.
