Question for the group:

Considering selling the old and buying a new netbook. Since it seems to be all you can get on regular-retail netbooks, who has used Windows 7 Starter? Is it as shitty as it sounds? Is it really impossible to change the wallpaper? (And how ridiculous is that?) Should I be budgeting for an ($95 in Canada) OS upgrade? Can full-featured Windows 7 even run on a 1.66GHz processor? (Do not suggest Linux to me, I will cut you.)

Or should I just buy a 10-inch Eee PC and resign myself to XP for the forseeable future (which has never given me any notable problems)?

P.S. Dear Computer Retailers: It is 2010. Why can we still not sort by weight and battery life?

The CA site is called The Ultimate Steal - and alas, Windows 7 comes to $95 CAD these days. :(

Hey. I've got a little Eeepc and it's got Windows 7 Starter. It's not fantastic, but it's not incredibly crap either. You can change the wallpaper, that's a myth and it's pretty easy actually. If you decide to get one, I can explain to you, how. It's hard to work it out on your own, because it's really different. But it easy once you know.

Other than that. I'm having an alright run with it. Like I said...not fantastic, but definately not the worst. And I ♥ my Eeeeeepc.
