Jolicloud, the easysimple OS for netbooks even in its alpha release is based on opensourced Linux and could help increase the performances of your neybook if it now running with a Windows OS.
Here is why, in a text by Caitlyn Martin (on the O'Reilly website)
"if you're running Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, all of which are significantly more resource hungry that any of the Linux distributions (Jolicloud included) typically offered on netbooks.
When you add anti-virus and anti-spyware software plus a personal firewall, the minimum requirements for a safe and secure Windows system, the poor netbook is so bogged down that performance is poor."
Yes, with Jolicloud OS compared to Windows Xp and even the new coming Windows 7, you do not need to run any Anti-virus, Anti-Spyware or a personal firewall ...
It saves, yes, money but, more essentially, here, resources for your netbook.
