• Yes you want Windows 7 on your netbook

    I’ve been crowing about running Windows 7 Ultimate on an ASUS 1000H netbook for several months now. I know most of you don’t believe me, but Win7 works almost as fast as XP – and it’s much more capable in many different ways, not the least of which is security.

    A site I’ve never heard of, Legit Mobile Reviews, just posted a detailed benchmark comparison of XP and Win7 on an ASUS 1005HA. Their conclusion:

    Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system can and will be run on netbooks without a significant performance difference in most areas when compared to Windows XP. Consumers will be able to enjoy the enhancements had since 2002 without fear of turning their netbook into a clunker!

    Amen, bro.

    If you own a reasonably recent netbook, you’re going to want Windows 7 Home Premium. Count on it.
