View Full Version : eeePc (again)

06-05-2010, 02:40 PM
Just a question for you wise geeks regarding my friend's eeePc. I've been trying now for a few days to make more space on the eeePc HD, to no avail. Trying to reinstall XP, it does not want to do anything (perhaps due to a lack of HD space)? I thought, with XP being so big, I should install Linux on this machine, and get OpenOffice for her Word app's - and then the question of "not enough HD space" will hopefully be over. What is the latest Linux kernel that resembles XP (the last one I knew was Ubuntu V10 I think).

10.04 of Ubuntu has only just come out. Why would it be similar to XP?? Its a different OS

Very similar to Windows - it's not a real OS :lol:

How big is the HDD ? Must be very small if it cant take an XP OS. From Memory its under 2GB.

My Eee 701 has a 4GB SSD and takes XP just fine, as well as Office 2007.
