Has anyone upgraded Windows 7 from the starter addition? How much does it increase the sluggish performance? What benefits do you gain? Does it allow for full Tablet PC functionality?
Thanks for your responses.

I have not tried it yet and I probably will not either. The performance will probably get worse when a fatter OS gets installed.

Linux drivers? Which drivers do you mean? Everything already works just nicely.

Yeah, even the screen works (for now). From my thread: Display: 1024x600 with xorg-x11-drv-psb from rpmfusion :).

I have gotten both the touch screen as well as the cursor joystick to work. Only with the binary touch screen driver the cursor joystick is no longer usable. They seem to share the same PS/2 port. The port needs to be put in raw mode for the touch screen driver to work.

Thanks. I do not think Ubuntu will make a difference. The binary touchscreen drivers from eeti.com should probably be modified to a allow both the touchscreen and de mouse to work at the same time (as they do under Win7).

BTW I not sure if there is a (current) GMA500 package for ubuntu available. Hopefully Intel will release an updated driver early next year (to coincide with the release of the new Atoms and accompanying chipsets).

The crunchpad was one of my favourite tablet candidates. It seems the project has been cancelled due to problems with the software supplier company. (http://www.engadget.com/2009/11/30/the-crunchpad-disappears-in-a-puff-of-vapor/. Too bad.

I am also interested on knowing whether some Windows 7 tablet-exclusive things are activated with a Home Premium version. Ink support is inexistant (but, on the other hand, I don't know if the screen is good enough to support it).

No lint i think it will actually come out... but its gonna be a weird linux browser based system, but not Crome...
And Tec the screen will support it but its only a 1.2 ghz single core atom.... The performance will be terrible anyway so whats the point...

How much cpu would ink recognition need? I really don't think it will be that bad (I am using it right now). And as it is image processing, it might be able to delegate some of the work to the graphics chipset.

I have used an external USB drive to wipe out the OEM version of Windows 7 and installed Windows 7 Enterprise Edition. The first thing I noticed once the installation completed is faster load for Windows 7 and faster program responsiveness.

Still, the performance is still a bit slow, especially with video dropping out. I have ordered a replacement drive (SSD 128) compatible with the Archos 9. Once I have it I will attempt to load Windows 7 on it. Since it is SSD, it should run faster than the OEM drive.

I shall keep you all posted.
