You may, and I've made a note to get around to this.

My T101, running Peppermint 2. This device could be folded, in a way to serve as a tablet. I just installed the app "Florence", what is a virtual keyboard. Whit that, the "tablet" mode is, at least, usefull! It still be heavier than an Android tablet, but a lot more powerfull!

Here the infos... Asus EeePC T101MT

If I actually manage to understand how to use this OS I'll move it from the usb-key to the main HDD and throw away definitively that pesky Windows8 :P

WIN definitively need a big part of the HDD. If you don't need it as second OS, you can trow it away and use some application (app!), like WINE, allowing you to run a WIN program under Linux.

This gives you the full HDD for Peppermint.

I have to admit that as an owner of an eeePC which came with Windows 7 installed, I agree with Chichille8 on this one. After it took something in the order of thirty minutes for this apparently pre-installed OS to install itself... that still confuses me a bit... I figured that things weren't going to start getting any better and decided there and then to hose it, even though ordinarily I'd look to keep the OS as a 'just in case' measure.

It occurs to me that a big part of the hard drive usage problem is caused by manufacturers' insistence on these 'recovery partitions'. I miss the days when you'd get given a CD. I guess times change. Here's a tip to those manufacturers, though -- not that any of them will be reading this. How about supplying an emergency usb key instead? (Yeah, I know there are ... commercial reasons why this is probably out).

I've decided I'm finally gonna get a 100% Peppermint system ... just one question: would it be best to partition my ssd as one big ext4 landfill, or for some reason it may be better to just devote 10 or 20 Gb to it and keep the rest as a Fat32 logical partition? ...or something else?

The only reason I can think of for retaining FAT32 space would be if you need whatever's on it to be readily accessible to a Windows system.

Ok, it is done!
I liberated my rig from a two years long Windows infestation!

I've got a 10gb ext4 /Root, a 90gb ext4 /Home and a 100gb NTFS "Archive" partition (it contained all the stuff I wanted to save, there was no helping it :P)

And MAN!
Installing PeppermintOS2 on a usb-key worked fine... but on a full fledged SSD it was like a breeze!
It took no time (I don't know, maybe 10-15 minutes?) and the system is even snappier that the usb-version! *_*

A

MA

ZING!

Now, you get a full power EeePc everywhere with you!
