This is a remarkable review, for several reasons.  It gives a positive
review of a Linux computer, and it actually is somewhat harsh with Microsoft
Windows!  Please digg up this review, if you are so inclined.



Unencumbered by Windows, the Eee boots up so quickly I didn't bother
counting the seconds. Its Wi-Fi chip links with the Web in a flash, and its
webcam - a feature missing from many laptops triple the price - turns it
into a video messaging device with the help of eBay Inc.'s Skype, which
comes pre-loaded. There are USB ports for peripherals, a port to connect to
a monitor, and - most essential - a flash memory slot to expand its meager
storage. Battery life is advertised at 3.5 hours.
