This is GREAT tutorial. As a person who is going into grade 12 and who used his free garbage-picked netbook throughout high school, I would like to make some suggestions:I am running a small version of Linux called Porteus. It takes some getting used to, but it runs fast (much faster than Windows), improves battery life, and runs everything, even games. You can even build your own personalized install image so you can chose what it comes with.Also, LibreOffice is a great alternative to Microsoft Office and OpenOffice and it is open source and free.And finally, for the love of God, get some computer tech knowledge and upgrade your netbook. Is definitely worth the effort.
