    The camera works fine, it's just the fact that Xandros (or the distribution of it supplied with the 701) only supports WEP encryption over WLAN, no WPA. Incidentally, the Eee distribution in particular of Xandros is evil and it must die.

    Ubuntu Intrepid should work OK on the Eee, but I've been impressed with Fedora 10–everything works out of the box with it (except Cheese, which needs a bit of fiddling to get it to work).

    I'm interested in anything that works on the EeePC. How well does Fedora 10 handle the small screen resolution? Do you have to use ALT + left click to move windows around so you can see parts of the windows?

    Sorry, it took to much time to get my wife Eee set up with all her email and pics for me to just download and try it.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.
