[quote=“Charlie Phillips”]I got one for my gf and a couple of weeks later, my desktop died so I got one for myself. Hers Windows and His Linux. Cute huh?
Linux came with a simplified xandros but found a hack to run it in advanced desktop mode. It obviously has it’s limitations in keyboard and display, but at home I plug a full size keyboard and monitor in. Small HD supplemented with flash/external drives and Bob’s yer uncle.
I’m a linux convert now and can’t help preachin about it. Anyways, colleague has one running on windows and it’s a pain in the A. OS takes up the whole HD.[/quote]
I’m curious about you running Linux on a netbook. Why do you like it so much? What are the main benefits that you see besides the smaller space on the HD?
I’m thinking my next tech purchase will be some sort of netbook that I can hack to run a Mac OS on. Not really interested in Windows 7, but hope to dig deeper into some other tech projects that require a Linux distro. Since I’d be a newbie I assume Ubuntu is the way to go. Any tips, preacher man?
