Eee PC

I'm writing this on an Asus Eee PC, which I've been given to trial by East Lothian Council.

My first impressions are very positive. As an experienced Linux user, I found the interface a bit annoying, but a quick google brought me to this howto which explains how to switch out of the easy mode and back to a more regular Linux desktop. Before the switch, it looks like this:

easy mode

and now it looks like this:

full desktop

I can see the appeal of the easy mode for younger pupils.
