@Pilgrim, I would watch the way you address senior members, especially Mods.....and even the absurd idea that Steve (Holmes4) posts nonsense itself is nonsense

I've used Windows XP, Vsta, 7, MAC OS X 10.5.8, 10.6 and Ubuntu on my DELL Mini 9. So I hope that I'll help you.
Few mounth ago I bought an used DELL Mini 9 (8GB SSD) with Windows XP. The first think that I did was to buy a 16GB SD HD card (to put all my documents). I hadn't any problem, becouse Windows XP had all the drivers installed.
But then, I've installed a reduced installation of Windows 7 (with vLite) and it doesn't read my SD HD. So I downloaded a driver from My DELL Mini Forum and all goes perfectly.
With MAC OS X and Ubuntu I had no problems.
You have a 16GB SSD, the doble of mine. It's a lot of space! You don't have to reduce any installation of MAC or Windows! You would have to be very happy! xD
Seriously, in my Netbook I only MS Office, Firefox, OpenOffice and some litle applications. If I want to use something more, I have my laptop DELL XPS 15. So, 16GB is enouth.
Obviously, if you would have a bigest SSD, you would install more programs. But, personally, I think that SSDs are very expensives.
Personaly, I bought my used Mini 9 for 90€, and I don't want to spend 60€ for a 32GB SSD, becouse for 190€ I could have bought a new netbook with a lot of GB.
If you get used, SSDs are not too bad.
I tried a lot of OS in my Mini. So, if you don't know what OS to install, I've recently posted a new thread with my experiences: Look at here: Mini Guide (with lithe POOL): My experiencies with differents OS in my DELL Mini 9
I hope I'll help you.
