I honestly don't know if I prefer XP or Windows 7. Not sure if I'll want to go back to XP in a couple of months as Windows 7 seems like a very worthwhile upgrade for me as its speed is pretty surprising.

Having the icon based taskbar makes Win7 worth it over all of their other versions, when using it on a netbook like this. Now I can dock it to the right side, leaving the full 600px height for apps (without having to turn on auto-hide for the taskbar) and it isn't very wide since it uses icons instead of listing out what is open.
I had installed it using Vlite from those guides and it's using 5GB out of 7.15GB
