    All source code is apparently available now (which is perhaps rare when it
    comes to Asian companies).

    I just visited asus' web site. According to their specs, the thing runs
    on "C" batteries. Who the **** wants to have to shell out $5 for every
    three and a half hours of operation?

    I see that the technology of "rechargeable batteries" hasn't yet reached the
    cave that you live in.

    Maybe not, but with Microsoft Windows Vista, one doesn't
    need "C" batteries[*]. Clearly, this is an advantage
    (FSVO) for Microsoft Windows Vista. :-)
    [*] Did you really want to know what it *does* need? ;-)
