including eeeXubuntu, EeeDora, ZenEee,
EeePCLinuxOS, and Puppeee. The latter is based on
Puppy Linux, a tiny Linux distribution that sports a
few unique features that make it a perfect candidate
for use on machines like the Eee PC.
I bought my daughter an Eee PC 4G. She really loves it. It is

Except your time.
My time is worth a lot of money.
I won't waste it trying to debug Linux so that the likes of
IBM can profit off of my bug squashing by selling Linux and
Linux support contracts.
Aha! The anti-Linux modus operandi reveals itself. The Windows
shill expresses anti-competitive sentiment.
You suckers in the OSS world are being taken for a ride. You
just haven't figured it out yet because you are too busy
compiling the latest version of Linux.
