It doesn't look too convincing to me... but let us know how you get on! I suppose if it's as limited as it looks then it'd make a good companion for the eee.

Hmm, well I was installing it on the basis of a simple "how to" guide posted on t'internet - Unfortunately , they have 'changed some things' since the guide was posted up , and as a result the drivers package for the EEE wouldn't work !
It all looked nice and pretty , but a web based OS with no wi-fi becomes a little pointless - also , It is still REALLY like Ubuntu , but with a lot of the functionality removed (or more , left out of the GUI - hidden if you like)
So I might as well just use Ubuntu ! I spent an evening last night trying to get wi-fi working , couldn't - so gave up :D
Not particularly bothered about the OS's footprint TBH - I messed around getting XP into 867mb .... and then realised that the nature of the EEE means you don't REALLY need a lot of storage on the C drive , I don't really store a lot on it , and If I do I tend to direct it to the SDHC card , so as long as the OS fits on the SSD , happy days !
I would like to get Tiger running properly on it though :D

above should help, though cant imagine it running at any great speed.
Eeedora is a flawed execution, Linux Mint runs fine, but you have to follow the second link above to get the wireless working.
eeepclinuxos runs well but is currently beta.
eeexubuntu is also flawed as upgrading will break it as it'll get a new kernel not compiled.

This got me thinking about launching web apps from the dock in leopard. I've installed Prism (http://labs.mozilla.com/2007/11/prism-prototype-now-available-on-mac-and-linux/), but was wondering if the dock feature can save urls all on its own?
