"While I have exposure to Windows and Linux
distributions on many disparate devices, this review will focus on
a single model computer; the Asus Eee PC 1000HE. I have selected
this model because I have extended knowledge of the components that
make up this system, and I have used both Desktop Linux and Windows
7 extensively on this hardware.
"The Asus 1000HE is a 10” netbook computer sporting the
Intel Atom n280 microprocessor running at 1.66GHz. This netbook is
sold with 1GB of RAM, a 160GB SATA hard drive, 1.3Mp webcam,
WIFI-N, and Bluetooth. This particular Eee PC was upgraded to 2GB
of memory the day it was taken out of the box.
"Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04, and Karmic 9.10
"Installation of Jaunty or Karmic is trivial. Installation is
one of the areas that Desktop Linux distributions have been doing
very well for quite some time. After asking a few questions, the
installation completed as expected without issue."
