Finally a geek post again! So I’ve been using both operating systems on my EEE netbook for some time now. Window 7 starter came with the system, I did a dualboot installation of Ubuntu Netbook Remix next to it. The reason was that I liked to explore (finally) if I can make the step to using only opensource software. My needs are pretty basic; internet, wi-fi, image editing and uploading and maintaining my blog for a bit. Plus I like to listen to music. These are my findings to my specific needs ( and noobiness on both OS ). Along the road sometimes I need more performance ( video’s ) but also long battery times when doing simple stuff and not having a socket ready somewhere.
