What I want to know is will this Win7 for "netbooks" be trimmed down to fit on smaller SSD drives? I prefer SSD for netbook usage for durability since it's so easy to drop such a small machine. A standard Win7 install is ~16GB! Where did all of this bloat come from? I don't know about Vista since I have never installed it since I bought it.
When I put a fresh install of XP Home SP3 on my Eee 901, installed all Windows Update and system drivers, the total space used was just over 1GB.
I installed a 32GB SSD in my Eee 901, but with Windows and the programs I use, I'm still only using 3GB of space. I use the extra space at times when I travel to copy some TV shows or movies to watch, or store digital pictures until I get home. I previously carried a 2.5" external HD for that, but now I don't need too.
If/when I upgrade to a newer netbook that comes with Win7 or if I decide to install Win7 on my current Eee 901, that's going to cut into my storage space.
