First thing I did was partition the hard disk and install ubuntu in the space I'd freed. Then I started looking at ways to make Win7Starter do my bidding... and although I certainly wouldn't want it on my desktop machine, most of the things you're not supposed to be able to do you can work round or fix for free. Result? I spend more time in 7 than ubuntu and most of my issues with the machine relate to the screen (working with 600pix height is a challenge in any OS, sometimes).
