I bought an Eee PC, but haven't tried any other software on it yet. I can
confirm that the hardware is a bargain, and I used it 'as is' while
travelling for ten days, and it connected 'out of the box' to the wireless
service provided in each hotel. A mouse is a great help, although the
built-in pad is quite usable. I had no trouble with the tiny keyboard,
except for needing the light on to read the keys.
They are a really great innovation, IMHO. I am really pleased with mine.
The wireless card may be the problem with FreeBSD.
