I'm using mine one for reading books in Spanish and writing private stuff; I have a Spanish dictionary on it and an offline version of the Spanish Wikipedia. As well I use it to connect to Internet when I'm sitting in a beer garden to access things I wanna read. It is a netbook per definition. And really cool. The battery (6600 mAh) gives me around 4.5 hours autonomy, but often I find a point with power. > There is a nice description about how to install FreeBSD on > this device at http://www.unixarea.de/installEeePC.txt - and > I can't wait to try this out.

(I'm curious, and > since you're from a .de domain, your answer should apply > to me, too.) I have a flat rate SIM and PCMCIA card from the company I'm working for. And bought the UMTS dongle for my private usage in eBay for around 35 euro, I think. I'm using it nearly every evening. > -- > Polytropon > >From Magdeburg, Germany I lived in Westeregeln and went to school in Egeln :-) > Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 happy since 2.2.5 (around 1997, I think). matthias -- Matthias Apitz t +49-89-61308 351 - f +49-89-61308 399 - m +49-170-4527211 e <g...@unixarea.de> - w http://www.unixarea.de/ People who hate Microsoft Windows use Linux but people who love UNIX use FreeBSD. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
