Isn't XP more space-hungry than linux? Or is this how they keep the prices identical even after paying for an OEM Windows licence? Don't get me wrong, as a linux user (some would call me a ******) I don't mind the bonus. It's just that inquiring minds want to know.
I haven't tried it yet myself, but apparently XP can be cut down quite small if you take out a lot of the junky processes that you don't really need. The size difference of the flash drive modules was purely to keep the prices for each model the same.
On another note, it was just announced that Asus will be making a 10" screen model
, with the Intel Atom processor. Apparently the 10" model will be the biggest for the EEE system.
