eee PC: xandros vs eee-ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Xandros succeeded in hiding everything but what they wanted you to see. This
| is a good thing if the PC is for a newbie (or your grandmother). A short
| amount of hacking at work revealed that Xandros went pretty far to `shield’
| users from any of that nasty operating system junk. It’s just a bunch of
| huge icons that you click on to start programs. They don’t want you to have
| multiple users, add icons, or much of anything else.
|
| Eee-ubuntu is closer to regular Ubuntu. It’s the same basic idea of tabs
| containing groups of programs but it treats you as less of an idiot. You can
| have multiple users (there’s a wife joke in there somewhere), and do a lot of
| the standard customizations. They spent much less effort hiding the OS from
| the user but it’s still pretty friendly.

| the printer was ready. It didn't even ask me a question. NOT A THING.

| While I was waiting for the first round of software to install on Windows, I
| turned to my laptop running Ubuntu to see if I could get it setup to print as
| well. I launched the printing configuration tool. Clicked on "New Printer".
| Typed in the IP address I had assigned to the printer and selected the model
