Windows Let's combine the two most popular topics on the internet today into one: Windows 7 on netbooks. Microsoft has already confirmed that it will ship a version of Windows 7 designed for netbooks, the popular small laptops that appear to be the only bright spot in an otherwise abysmal PC industry climate. However, with various reports indicating that Windows 7 already runs fine on netbooks, this raises the question: what exactly is Microsoft planning?

I only want one thing.

Assuming a Netbook can play any audio and/or video file that I throw at it, the only thing I'd want a Netbook to be able to do in Win7 is to join a Homegroup. Then I can access video stored on my "big" computer elsewhere in the house from bed or wherever.

I really think of a Netbook as an extension of my main machine. If I'm going somewhere, I'll put the data I want on an SD card. But really, it's a portable media/internet machine to me.
