    Perhaps Jolicloud? Their latest release became available this past December.

    That's the thing...what the heck are you going to be able to run on just 1GHz? Yeah XP came out in the Pentium 3 days, but with all the updates on it now, it ain't a ball of fire even on Intel Atoms.....you have to combine the Atom with an SSD drive just to get XP to run tolerably on a netbook. And then there goes your budget netbook..w/cost of an SSD.

    This cheaper proc may be useful on some miniITX devices to run some lighter *nix router distros.
