FYI,  we have purchased some recent eeepc (I cannot tell exactly
which, I don't have the info at hand).  It was pre-loaded with windows
7.  I installed ubuntu loaded with the necessary libraries and pd.  I
have experimented with running our pd patches under windows but the
performance terrible compared to linux (even before tweaking any
settings to improve performance).  I could run the same setup on an
Acer Aspire One but the processing is not very intensive, in any case.
 On the other hand, I do not know how to make Windows efficient, it
must be possible since there are so many people relying on it for
performance and studio work.
