Asus already sells variants of its new Eee PC 900 with Windows XP and Linux operating systems installed. Despite these choices, some people need to go one step further. The folks at OC Workbench say they've managed to get a copy of Windows Vista Home Premium running on an Eee PC 900, and they've posted photos of their endeavor.
The photos show Vista's control panel window and the system information window. In the latter, we can spot a "1.0" Windows Experience score, presumably stemming from the Eee's 900MHz Celeron M processor and antiquated integrated graphics chipset. That said, the Eee 900 almost matches the minimum requirements for Vista—Microsoft mandates a 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 20GB of storage capacity. Quite unsurprisingly, though, the OC Workbench guys set Vista to use the eye-candy-free Aero Basic user interface.
