Black. I couldn't make up my mind what color to get. I just sort of
settled on black.

I've upgraded everything I can think to upgrade. It was a 4G PC900
model. Now it's 16G (a Runcore SSD that's much faster). It had 512M.
Now it has 2G (the default Xandros can't handle more than 1G). I just
got a replacement battery yesterday that's 10400. The original was
5800. And I dumped Xandros. First for Eeebuntu, now for Ubuntu 9.04.

None of that was necessary let me add. I knew I'd want to make those
sorts of changes no matter what the original model had. So I bought one
that was low-end enough that it would be huge changes taking place.

But the original would have worked fine as-is. The only thing I'd
recommend is dumping Xandros. It takes up the entire drive on the 4G
model because of how it installs. It shouldn't really need all that.
The others I tried cut disk use by about half just by dumping Xandros.

It's Ubuntu 9.04 now. I may leave it alone, or I may play around with
some others (I constantly change things on the desktop, too). I just
downloaded Cruncheee 8.10.2 and CrunchBang 9.04 (unofficial). I might
play around with those over the next week or so.
