Linux MeeGo is a Linux-based operating system designed by Intel and Nokia for netbooks and smart phones. Installing MeeGo on an Eee PC 1000 netbook is quick slick and easy. I found the user interface to be colourful and stylish with many quirky animations. MeeGo's features are easy to discover and it is fast and responsive.

"I was turned to a Linux user by Metallica ten years ago.

Care to explain?
"

I'm guessing he's referring to how Metallica was very outspoken against Napster. Probably lead him toward the path of free (cost) software because he didn't like paying for digital copies? Just guessing.

You're not far off with you guess.

I formatted my hard drive in order to get ride of the hidden registry setting that Metallica required Napster to put on my computer. The windows registry annoyed me because I felt Metallica had more control over my PC than I did. To top it off I couldn’t reinstall Windows with the disk supplied with the PC, because I had upgraded some of my hardware.

I’d been dual booting with Mandrake, I’d bought a box set complete with a printed manual. So I gave up on Windows and stuck with Mandrake for a while.
