I guess your Asus Netbook has a single-core Intel Atom processor?
Well, those are slow, and there is little we can do about that!

I have managed to run a Freenet node on an Asus EeePC 901 (1 GiB of
RAM, Intel Atom N270 single-core at 1.60 GHz) with a rather limited
number of peers (around 15 – 20, I think), FMS running in the
background, and found similar CPU utilization. Apart from that, the
machine was almost entirely unresponsive and its average ping time was
around 1 – 1.5 seconds, which is excessively high.

There should not be much difference between the performance of the
Oracle JVM on Windows and Linux. If you notice a reproducible an
verifiable performance gain by switching to Windows, please report
this as a bug.

The Raspberry Pi almost certainly does not have enough computing
power. I have tried to run an Freenet node on one once, but that
failed miserably. While most of that failure can be attributed to its
lack of memory (I used a Model B v1.0, sporting only 256 MiB of
memory), the Raspberry Pi's computational power would not have been
enough to run a node with more than a handful of peers.

An old smartphone is, for the same reasons as above, unlikely to be
capable of running a full-featured Freenet node. A recent and powerful
smartphone or tablet might just do, though (although getting Freenet
to run under Android is quite another story).
