I have had an Asus EEPC 901 since they came out. It has had several Linux
operating systems on it even running Windows XP as a guest of Mandriva Linux
via VirtualBox as an experiment. It worked but was too slow for practical
purposes. It currently has PClinuxOS and has been used (literally) all over
When it was just under 12 months old, the screen seemed to die. Within a few
days it was collected, motherboard replaced and returned with all my data
Rosegarden is a bit of a hungry beast. I think the eepc would be pushing it
PNHB (Probably no help but).
