After buying an EEEPC in early 2008, I kept the same operating system that came with the computer for a while.
The operating system was a custom version of Linux called Xandros and came in a tabbed interface which I switched to a full desktop mode (KDE) installation option.
It's not an easy job though, it gets a bit more complicated because you don't have a CD/DVD drive in the Eee PC.
You have to get the ISO image onto a USB Flash stick first.
In 2010, I installed an operating system called Easy Peasy (based on Ubuntu, a Linux-based operating system) and used that for a while.I apologise if this has been the case, What I said was as follows: Thank you so very much for such a comprehensive answer - I shall follow the instructions minutely and am sure all will now be well, Thank you once again Gela Do it the easy way: hold: ctrl alt t to open a 'terminal'. HOWEVER, firefox will stop working if you upgrade past Firefox 3.x.x with the original eee linux (Xandros).
