It would be nice if I could turn over my hardware every few years to match the demands of the latest operating systems; alas, I can't.
Having said that, what strategies are available for my 1030 when Windows XP is no longer available. Will there be some version of Windows 7 that could thrive in this small package? If not, would some distro of Linux be the way to go?
I don't plan on purchasing any Windows applications for the 1030; I'll make maximum use of Open Source. That will give me upgrade flexibility.
Any thoughts .....
