Hardware, Embedded Systems As we all know, the Eee PC, running a modified Xandros, has been a major hit for Asus, and because of that, also a major hit for Linux. The device proved that a computer with a pre-installed Linux distribution can still be s successful machine, and many hoped that this would push Asus and other vendors to produce more computers with Linux pre-installed. This hope could be in vain after all if the new Windows XP-based Eee PC has anything to do with it.

I agree. Thought I could get Zeta on it, but no luck so far. Mind you ( biased though I am to anything Linux ) I did try Leszek's ZevenOS for a while, only to ditch it a few days later. I fear a slip-streamed 2K or XP is on the cards.
