How big is the HDD of your netbook? Yes, you can uninstall Linux and install XP, but XP will leave you less space than Linux, and if your HDD is small, this could be significant.

The 10GB storage is temporary unless you pay (or that's what it seems). So you actually only have 4GB to work with. An XP install will take around 2-3GB depending on what basic programs you install.
