Using Windows 7 On a Netbook

Last weekend I installed Windows 7 on my Asus 1000HE netbook PC. I had planned to use the Windows Easy Transfer wizard to transfer my settings and files from the Windows XP installation on this netbook to Windows 7, but I have decided to not bother with the transfer, essentially starting from scratch.

I can tell you that I very much like Windows 7 over Windows XP, and I am finding the performance under Windows 7 to be very snappy. One of my main concerns has been with battery life, as I have been very happy with the battery life on this netbook under Windows XP. So far I have not noticed a decrease in battery life, which I think is largely due to the fact that the Asus Super Hybrid Engine, which controls the processor speed to optimize power consumption, runs just fine under Windows 7.
