My Asus Eee PCâ€™s Linux Journey
This previous Christmas, I asked for and was given a brand new Eee PC (701). When I opened it, the comments around the room came quickly, Ã¢â¬ÅThatÃ¢â¬â¢s a computer?Ã¢â¬Â and Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s so smallÃ¢â¬Â and Ã¢â¬ÅWhat a neat toy.Ã¢â¬Â Well, that Toy has been on quite a Linux journey in recent months. And IÃ¢â¬â¢m now running eeeXbuntu on the Eee PC. HereÃ¢â¬â¢s how I arrived at that operating system, along with some clues about where I may go next.
