So I took the plunge and installed Windows FLP on the ASUS EeePC 701. I did this knowing I could just restore the Xandros distro at any time.
Being a nerd, I took a lot of screenshots and grainy photos along the way:
The verdict? Very fast, light system. And it runs all the Windows stuff with no problems. No real advantage over the Xandros distro in usability, except that it uses less disk space.
I would have tried the Mac OS X install on the EeePC, but the thought of running Leopard on 512MB of RAM makes me cringe When Windows FLP boots, it’s using a memory footprint of 64MB, with no apps running. Very light.
