What's been keeping me busy the last 2 days



I've been playing around with my new Asus Eee 900 netbook. Got it because it was cheap (at least way cheaper than the an XP netbook with a hard drive). This netbook's has a 20 gb (4 + 16) SSD drive.

Although much easier to setup than an XP netbook, I found myself spending way too much time tweaking small little things, like adding the option for an advance desktop, maximizing Firefox's screen space, font size for different applications, etc.

I'm still undecided now whether to spend even more time loading any Linux distribution, primarily because this netbook currently boot up almost immediately. Any other Linux distro while it may look better then the Eee's Xandros Linux would not be able to beat the boot up time.

Guess I'll just hack around this delivered OS for a while.

This blog post was done via the Eee 900 with ScribeFire on Firefox. Typing on the keyboard really isn't that bad after some practice. ScribeFire isn't that bad, but nothing beats Windows Live Writer.
