I can guarantee that this Aspire One netbook has the most boring desktop on the planet. You are not allowed to change the desktop background. Not allowed. Awful things will happen to you and your netbook if you dare try. It has been quite an achievement to get to this boring desktop and to even be blogging from it. Times have changed. I inherited the netbook from my daughter who is so in love with her iPad for quick and easy netting. I have spent a few weeks watching paint dry on the netbook as I have updated files, removed files and generally made the supreme effort of actually getting it going so I could actually use it! There will be more posts on my netbook journey. At the weekend it will be upgraded from its one gigabyte of RAM to 2GB. That ought to improve things considerably. In the meantime I should love Microsoft to relent and let me colour my netbook world. Seriously, that desktop sucks.
