"Speaking of extra applications, Docky is pre installed in Ping-Eee OS with intellihide/autohide options disabled by default. That was a bit of surprise to me since in netbooks, vertical space is a scarce resource and it is one of the reasons why distros like Ubuntu, in its latest latest release, has launcher on the left sidebar(which itself is set to autohide). Changing the Docky settings to 'Intellihide' was the first thing I did after installing Ping-Eee OS in my netbook.

"Mozilla Firefox is the default web browser and since I have been a rather heavy user of Chromium for the past one year or so, I am not really comfortable with Firefox anymore. Fired up the terminal and sudo apt-g.., surprise again. Auto tab completion was not there! Took some time a fair amount of googling to find the solution. Apparently, auto complete was disabled by default."
