It won't matter what you install on it. The Atom processor is always going to be slow.

I even put Unbuntu Netbook edition on my netbook, no difference.
The Atom processors just do not have the horsepower.

Software, no matter how good, can EVER substitute good hardware. This is the very reason I refuse to buy a Mac. Great OS, but no matter how good your OS is, it will never make up totally for the lack of good hardware. A good OS is more or less an addition to the good hardware. This is how I see it anyway. Intel Atom CPUs, especially the single core variety are very weak. If I were to ever get a netbook, I'd probably go with one with an AMD Athlon Neo x2 and 2GB of RAM. AMD has some good netbook CPUs that are dual core and are cheaper than their Intel counterparts.

i would stick with 7 - xp isn't much fun any more, offers little in performance gains, and as you say finding drivers may be difficult for your new machine.

what is it? i've got a hp/compaq mini 311c - it's only got 1 gig of ram, but i can still photoshop on it (although 13inch screen isn't best for photoshop, but better than standard 10inch netbook fare).

7 is more efficient with limited resources than XP
