Linux MeeGo is a Linux-based operating system designed by Intel and Nokia for netbooks and smart phones. Installing MeeGo on an Eee PC 1000 netbook is quick slick and easy. I found the user interface to be colourful and stylish with many quirky animations. MeeGo's features are easy to discover and it is fast and responsive.

1990 is indeed only twenty years ago. I'm not certain which machines would still be referred to as "VAX-11" in 1990; I think by then they had gone onto monikers like "VAX 8210" and "VAX 8600".

Thirty years ago, the VAX-11/780 had to load its microcode and bootstrap from an 8" floppy.

Round about 27 years ago, machines like the VAX-11/730 loaded microcode and bootstrap from a tape drive connected over RS-232 at 19.2K baud. A netbook definitely boots faster than they did.
