| Unfortunately, you still need to re-flash the entire OS to get this version.
| There's an interesting post in this developers' blog about what to expect
| from next Nokia Tablet OS releases, code-named Chinook and its successor,
| code-named Diablo. Fortunately and according to the blog, Chinook will "come
| with a process to backup the data about the extra applications you have
| installed. Reflashing will be still needed since kernel + initfs still won’t
| be packaged, but at least users will get their extra apps back as part of the
| re installation process instead of having to manually install everything they
| had."

Who needs a CPU/RAM-greedy mobile when everything is handled by a remote
server? That's the future, also for small and light units like the Eee.
Another rave review (they don't stop coming):

The only flaw if the use of Xandros, which pays Microsoft ransom fees, having
grouped with the Racketeering Mafia.

| As for that other famous low-cost notebook: The $188 OLPC XO laptop is a far
| more ambitious product in that its purpose is to educate children in

Asus Eee PC 701 Review - Ultramobile Notebook with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The Asus Eee PC 701 is a unique notebook solution that I think will be more
| successful in the US than many people are giving it credit for. Even though
| it might not be completely embraced here as it was in Taiwan, the features of
| it make it stand out as a great mobile computing solution. The combination
| of incredibly fast boot times, low weight and size and even a small price at
| just $300-400 will bring more attention to this Asus notebook than any
| previous one. For people on the go that need a simple computing solution,
| the Asus Eee PC 701 might be the perfect fit.
