Re: Don't feel like getting VISTAed ...

I started playing around with Mandriva 2008 just after xmas and I like the gnome version very much. Version 2008.1 Spring was released a few weeks ago. I installed it on my Asus Eee PC and it works and looks great. This is the first distro to officially support the Eee.

Re: Don't feel like getting VISTAed ...

Apparently Microsoft are going to continue to make Windows XP available for low end PCs such as the Asus Eee. There is an interesting article about it here:
