    I find nothing wrong with the original Linpus that comes installed on these devices. Been using it problem free for months now. Does everything I need out of netbook computer.

    Cheers.

    I gave it a go a while ago. The browser needs a bit of resizing but thats easy done reducing font sizes or just using ctrl+scroll. Its much more secure and modifiable than linpus. Make a bootable usb and off you go.
