    Which seems to be the better OS for an x61 with 2g memory?

    Does anyone have experience with either, using Autocad on a tablet?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the advice in advance!

    I say go with Vista.. it works fine for me, and it's going to be the de facto standard in a year or two.

    Ubuntu might be the best. . .

    I'm not convinced BumpTop will have any use besides eye-candy. how do you tell one document apart from the next? also it seems like the many different tools make things needlessly complex.

    yggdrasil, I agree, and I also do not use Aero or any animations. Although some physical/spatial associations might definitely be useful if they are kept non-intrusive and resource efficient.

    But what I am definitely liking is the control by pen and gestures! See the "lasso and cross" for example. Or flicking things around. And the sectorized popup menue. Wow!
