    i love ASUS to death, but I'm not sure about this EEE PC... seems like theres a lot of buzz and hype about it, but is it really worth it? has anyone ever tried it?

    what flavor of Linux does it run? the website says XP compatible, but can we even install XP with only a max of 8 GB of space?

    I have XP on a 10GB drive in an old laptop with crappier specs than the eeePC.

    thats nice. when is that gonna be? i also heard the EEE 2nd gen will be out sometime early next year. might as well wait for that one. although i cant help thinking this is like a kid PC, with all the learning software installed. :dunno:
