I believe that is an ARM based netbook, not x86, so it might not be easy to modify. You might just be stuck with what it came with unless someone has found out how to put another distribution on it, which is not as easy as changing the distro on a x86 system.

Just don't judge Linux as a whole by what is installed on there, that is a very specialized embedded install.
