Nine Things To Do With Your Linux eeePC

"I picked up an ASUS eeePC 1000HE for a project I have going. It has an Atom N280 chip, 1024 x 600 LCD back-lit screen, WiFi, Ethernet, a VGA port, and three USB ports. I added an extra gigabyte of memory (bringing the total to 2 GB) and a Logitech XV Nano laptop mouse. The latest version of eeeBuntu Linux was installed via a USB memory stick and it runs the Gnome desktop, Firefox, OpenOffice.org, and the Compiz window manager. Make sure the Compiz Options -> Loose Bindings setting and the special window effects will be impressive.

"In spite of the changing netbook ecosystem, I thought it might be interesting to point out a few one-off uses that my techno-curious readers would appreciate. While I'll focus on the Asus eeePC, the topics covered today can apply to any netbook, just as long as it is running Linux."
