  1. Hong Kong reports - "Its one drawback: it ran on the open-source Linux operating system"

    WHEN ASUSTEK COMPUTER introduced its US$300-to-US$500 (HK$2,340-HK$3,900)
    Eee PC last fall, it was one of the lightest, cheapest, fully functional
    sub-notebooks on the market. Its one drawback: it ran on the open-source
    Linux operating system, which is not widely used.

    Asustek brought out a new version recently that runs on Microsoft Windows XP
    operating system. Weighing a mere 2 pounds and measuring about 9 inches wide
    by 6.3 inches deep by 1.3 inches thick, the new Eee allows users to choose
    from a larger range of applications and gives them a familiar interface.

    Talk about inches,

    the expee OS version will set you back 8Gb disk space.

    Thats because expee users like Doofus have shorter pinky toes (thats
    what he calls his tally whacker!).

    With Linux machine you get 20Gb, with an expeed machine you only get a 12Gb
    fitted - the 8Gb disk size is stolen by WINDUMMIES so it can pay for
    Micoshaft to survive.


    WINDUMMIES ARE BUYER'S WORST NIGHTMARE

    Is that you Ezekiel?
