Quest

Lately, I’ve been looking for a netbook. Specifically, I’ve been looking for a 10” Asus running Linux (because I’d rather not give Microsoft any of my money).

Also, some of the Asus netbook keyboards have an issue with an undersized and poorly positioned shift-key on the right-hand side which I’d like to avoid.

Unfortunately, all I can find for netbooks in that size are machines loaded with Windows XP. Apparently, it has become popular and taken the wind out of the Linux netbook’s sails (sales?).

Nonetheless, Asus claims that they make what I want with Linux installed so my quest continues.
