Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Netbook innovator Asustek has announced that it will ship three models of its Eee PC with Ubuntu 10.10 preinstalled. Canonical announced Asus' decision to load the Eee PC 1001PXD, 1011PX and 1015PX with Ubuntu 10.10 from 1 June as one that will "make it one of the most user-friendly PCs on the market". Asus said that "many more" Eee PC models running Ubuntu will be available later this year. Linux fans will hope that in the three years since Asus started shipping Linux on its Eee PCs users will have realised that Linux is far more lightweight and suited to netbook computing than Windows.

"Without stylus support"
Where have you been living for the last year ? I have an iPad 1 and I use a capacitive stylus made by Acase and it works great, I can write with it, etc. and keeps my screen nice and clean.
I also have an Android tablet for testing purposes (Android is not ready to play in the big show yet). I use resistive stylus with it made by Nintendo for the DNS. For resistive screens just about anything that won't scratch the surface will do, and again, it keeps my screen nice and clean.
