I am hopefully going to soon have an N140 to play with. I'm a Mac user with my main machines but I wanted something small and cheap to take away from home to let me download my photos to and for general email and browsing duties whilst away from home. The N140 looks like a great little machine for these purposes.
Being a Mac user I want to get some kind of Unix on there as my primary OS, although I plan to leave a small Windows partition there so that my small daughter can play a few lightweight Windows based games on it (assuming they will work on the N140).
My main question is this : I plan to install the Ubuntu netbook remix, will that take care of shrinking the Windows partition for me during a normal install or will I have to use other partitioning tools to do this with?
I do have a reasonable degree of Linux experience, dating back to the early 1990's when I alternated between various Linux builds and OS/2 in preference to Windows, and of course Mac OS is BSD under the hood so I'm hoping I'll get on well with Ubuntu NBR on the N140.
While I'm here for my first post, I just wanted to add how delighted I was to discover this resource. It looks like a great community and I hope I will soon be playing a full part in it - once I have my N140
