Guys, I want options. Have an Asus netbook - hardware is fine. But Win 7 starter is a closed minded OS. Can't even modify your desktop without a lot of work. Have XP SP2 licensed versions and can certainly use a flash drive to install Ubuntu Netbook Version 10.4. If I want to run XP, I'll need a USB portable external CD drive. Might as well have a unit that can play DVDs as well as help install CD software. Any cheap afforable portable USB drives I could score locally at Best Buy or online? Help me out - those rip from the user is just killing me.
