A few things of note:
- I sm the proud new owner of an Asus Eee PC
- It comes with linux (Xandros) installed by default!
- It has all the usual bells and whistles - firefox -> youtube and internet radio works out of the box, openoffice, pidgen (instant messanger that handles just about every protocol, msn, yahoo, aol, irc, etc) and a ton of other stuff (Frozen bubble!)
- Oh, and the best bit? Press Ctrl-Alt-t to get a terminal, ssh is installed and so is python!
- Wireless is trivial to get working too!
