I got one!! one what? One of these cool new Eee PC’s, that’s what! Cool little 7″ screen, all solid state hard drive, a whopping 2G of ram in mine, and soon…a bad-ass touch-screen. Seriously, watch these ultra-mobile pc’s hit the market in a big way. They are inexpensive, very portable, and just plain cool.
Yes, i plan on modding, and I will let you know how it goes. This little guy is supposed to be easy as pie to mod, so we’ll see how a TOTAL NOOB (me) does at modding the famous EEE.
Another great thing about the EEE PC is that it comes pre-loaded with a highly specialized version of Xandros-Linux (based off of Debian, the same thing that the mighty Ubuntu linux distribution is based off of. This means that the already mighty EEE runs, in the words of “The Linux Action Show” guys, “ALLLLLL kinds of Linux”, making it yet mighty-ER.
A very good thing, indeed.
Also grand is that since it is based off of Debian, like Ubuntu, this may help the whole Ubuntu-mobile project along, or at least get a very nice EEE-Ubuntu out there (which there are a few already, but I’m holding out at least until I install my touch screen, which has not yet arrived).
This thing is great, and I can’t wait to let you know how the modification process goes! If the touch goes well, I want to add some blue-tooth and GPS, oooooh, ahhhhhh. Wish me luck!
