Re: Upgrading Vista? Windows 7? Mac OS? - 02-04-2009, 04:17 PM
In terms of performance, I would not recommend to upgrade to Vista.
Mine came with Vista and was UNUSABLE.
The hardware is not adequate to handle Vista at all.
I tried Windows 7 beta. It was ok. The response was much faster than Vista and usable.
However, I had some frustration during web browsing. It was sort of slow and started bothering me.
Then I tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix. If you follow the instruction given by CrazyDesi.
It's much faster than Windows 7 beta. I am not sure if it is faster than XP or not.
I think Win7 and XP are comparable. And XP is quite old OS.
If you want a up-to-date OS for free, go for UNR.
If you are satisfied with old and simple XP, then keep it.
MacOS? I have no idea......
Download UNR iso and burn on DVD as image. Fire up an external DVD drive and follow the instruction.
Instruction for running UNR on mini12.
