Windows 8 Developer Preview on Acer Aspire One AOA150

Update November 1st 2012: Windows 8 on Acer Aspire AOA 150 Update: October 31st 2012 Since posting this article about over a year ago, the said AOA 150 is still alive, although with some changes. I have added a 500gb 7200 rpm HDD(ST9500420ASG) to the netbook. The netbook now runs a Windows 8 Release Preview with Ubuntu 12.10 as the main OS.  Windows 8 Release Preview apparently runs faster than Developer Preview. I might buy an upgrade license to Windows 8 pro, but with a resolution of 1024x600 and metro(windows 8) apps not working, I don't see much point. But I do need something to run my Nokia Music on... Other updates on Windows 8 1. License types available for Windows 8:   a. Upgrade License - $39.99 till January 31 2013   b. OEM License (The license which vendors will use when they bundle Windows 8 with your new PC)   c. System Builder License (Similar to the OEM license, but you can purchase this to build your own PC. Single PC/Virtual Environment use only) - $139
