Windows 7 Starter

Hello All,

I'm interested in peoples opinion of Windows 7 Starter.

I'm am undecided as to whether install this or Linux Mint on my fathers PC. Are the requirement lower (and performance better), than Pro?

He has 2GB RAM and a Celeron processor.

Pro was terrible, very, very, slow.

Thanks for your help!

Hey,can you give me a bit more detailed information about your computer?
I have Celeron processor too(2.8Ghz) and 2GB RAM and I've installed windows 7 ULTIMATE and it runs pretty fast.

I'm sure your computer can run more than windows 7 starter.So,if you install windows starter ,than you're gonna have no problems with performance!

But ,before you start installation, you should consider that Windows 7 starter is VERY limited! You won't be able to:
1.Use aero theme(just windows basic)
2.Change windows background,sound scheme,glass colors...

Windows 7 starter
My son bought a EEEPC 1001 or something like that. It has W7 starter as OS. Is this netbook capable of running any of the higher spec W7 Os's without to much of a problem? Without getting back to him I don't know what the ram situation is. Any hints or advice on that? Thanks
