I've only lurked for the last few years since the software/distributions for my 5500 dried up but, in a moment of madness I've just bought one of these http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...em=170273247758.

It's already got xp and office professional and was at a good price.

I thought that I could dual boot linux and replace my 5500 with it as my new toy.

Any comments?

Thanks chaps, it looks pretty enough for me but I have low standards in many areas.

I've already decamped to the umpc portal so I suppose that this is goodbye.

Had it for just over a week and like it very much and am still running xp and haven't done much yet as it was supplied with an invalid prodict key which is still to be resolved.

I got a B1s which has a 32gig ssd.

there is a port of ubuntu available but the wiki is all in Korean so I will want to do a lot of research before doing anything because, although I was active on here a few years ago I am not a linux afficionado and apart from installing roms on my (now retired, but nothing wrong withit, just needs a new battery) sl5500 I've never installed linux on anything so I would want to be certain that I could revert to my xp rather than bricking it and it looks a lot like a brick now.

As is often said the screen is outstanding in its clarity and brightness.
