    Is It Possible to Install android or windows mobile as an operating system? I think its a cool idea, and the laptop is too small for xp.

    Windows 95 + any key you find on the www = "activated" forever. Actually with windows 95 the key is just used to proceed with setup, that's the only time it's checked.
