Hardware, Embedded Systems The big thing in notebooks right now are netbooks. They're cheap, more than powerful enough for day-to-day tasks, and small enough to actually carry around without anyone even noticing you're carrying one (not a bad thing in some parts of the world). However, they also receive a lot of criticism, such as cramped keyboards and displays that are too small. So, at Kaiwai's suggestion, here's a question for you all: how do you use your netbook?

you forgot who I am? ;) of course I'm not running Vista. It runs Fedora 11 and does it rather well. Biggest bottleneck is the 4200 RPM hard disk (I didn't get the SSD model; the SSD's performance is also rather hampered by the odd design decision to use a PATA interface for it, from what I've read).
