The "advocate" lies never stop.  Vista runs much better than Linux on this

Load of tosh, since the install probably wouldn't pass WGA since (I'm also assuming) the blogger didn't just waste a legit license number hence an online activation just so he could get NT "sort of" running on something that clearly wasn't designed for it. Think of a tractor engine in a Reliant Robin. You might have to snip bits off, and in the end you're gonna have something that explodes when you turn the key. Or at the very least, won't have the PWR to move /itself/ never mind any passengers.

There's no fucking way vanilla Vista will run on an EeePC 900, and especially not one which has BARELY enough space on the SSD to even perform an install. Oh wait, switch out the SSD for a hard drive. That's better. Oh bollocks, it ain't a netbook anymore, it's a freakin' UMPC!

Microsoft: what do you want to shoehorn today?
