I went and got myself a present last Xmas. An Acer 'netbook' 2 gig RAM, 200G drive. Dual (actually quad) core ATOM (of all things) processor. 2 core cpu and 2 core graphics. It has win7 starter edition. I like. Its fast, I mean damn fast. Much faster at trancoding video and the like than my main tower by a factor of 4-5. I still entirely hate windows and its silly restore point BS. That hasnt been improved at all. It may or may not 'restore' the system. In fact, its just as likely to trash it worse than before. Always has been like that since XP. No matter once you turn the goofy thing off, split the drive into another partition dual boot with Knoppix. Then you simply Xerox the entire partition windows is on to the Linux one. If you break windows. Presto chango. You get it all back again in exact detail. Why cant Microsoft figure out how to do that? Otherwise i am impressed by even my crippled version of win7 starter. It is fast and doesnt crash or lockup. Winmx, robo, etc, etc. All that works just fine for me. 64 bit processor but 32 bit version of win7 though, maybe that is why I havent had the issues ive read from others trying to run this old software on a 64 bit windows.
