It has been running xp , but yesterday I (just for fun!) installed Ubuntu Desktop on a separate partition (xp has 26Gb and Ubuntu has 14Gb of a 40Gb drive).
I want to retain the xp and have a dual boot system that will default to Ubuntu - which is what it does now.
It is nice, but I'm wondering whether I should have gone for the Netbook Edition on my rather low-spec pc (P4 2.4GHz, 1Gb RAM, 128Mb Video Card)
My questions are:
- Will the Netbook Edition give me a faster boot up time?
- Will I be able to install it into the same partition, over the top of my Ubuntu Desktop? I don't want to end up with THREE operating systems, each in its own partition!
I don't store anything on the PC so it wouldn't be disastrous if I had to reformat the HDD, just a nuisance to reinstall xp etc
