    I've been looking at a CnMbook, thinking of getting one to let my brother use, because he's broken his own laptop. But it'll still be mine (because otherwise he'll treat it like ****).

    The CnMbook looks OK for the job, but I'm wondering if I'd be able to change the OS on it? I've got access to copies of MIPS Debian, so all I need to know is if I can actually wipe the machine and install another OS.

    I just want to put Debian on it, you see - once my brother's laptop's fixed, I'll keep it at the bottom of my backpack, just in case my laptop runs out of steam.
