Hardware, Embedded Systems Linux.com reviews the Asus Eee PC. "The Asus Eee PC has been heralded as a groundbreaking new computing experience and great for children. While the computer didn't bowl me over, my kids were another matter. When you hear about how small the Eee is, believe it: the unit measures approximately nine by six inches and weighs a mere two pounds. It's hard to take something that small seriously because it looks like a toy (and its name sounds like a sneeze). Open the lid, however, and you'll find power and features that belie its diminutive size."

eeeXubuntu is really nice. It is a work in progress though so all the built in Asus hardware such as the video camera are not easy to use yet. Networking, sound, VGA out, and wifi are currently working well. Follow the progress on eeeXubuntu over at http://wiki.eeeuser.com/ubuntu:eeexubuntu:home
