            :)

            As the point was made at Bootstrap Maryland the other day, if you're
            following
            your competition, at what point are you leading? Maybe this explains why
            Linux
            feels so much like a back rip-off of Unix systems -- always following
            Solaris or
            Windows or MacOS X -- rather than actually innovating.

            I guess you do get what you pay for. :\

                I can't wait for someone to create a tt-solaris Yahoo mailing list, so that we can move all these great Solaris threads there and then we can all enjoy all the rich, creamy goodness that Solaris has to offer!

                  Sigh. I just wish that folk would optimize their netbook distros for the older netbooks, and not for the newer stuff.

                  And people who want to use Windows will always do so. Solaris, ditto. I'm not one to say that Linux is perfect (it isn't -not by a long shot) but in a lot of cases, I prefer to live with/work around Linux shortcomings.

                  Well, I guess if I wanted to follow Solaris, I'd join a Solaris mailing list. But that's just me, I suppose...
                   
                  I can't wait for someone to create a tt-solaris Yahoo mailing list, so that we can move all these great Solaris threads there and then we can all enjoy all the rich, creamy goodness that Solaris has to offer!

                  I wonder who is following who into optimizing for netbooks?

                      Most of the new netbook distros (easy peasy, etc) are not optimized for
                      first generation EEE netbooks. In reading the release notes, they all
                      cite their optimization for the later model EEEs, the Acer netbook... In
                      short, the new models.

                      http://www.canonical.com/projects/ubuntu/unr

                      http://www.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-9.04-unr

                      https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks

                      Tier 2

                      These are netbooks that work somewhat, but have problems that may
                      interfere with typical activities at the moment, or many smaller issues.


                      Asus Eee 701-SD / 702

                      This netbook basically works, but most of the problems with it center
                      around the fact that it has a very small screen with a default
                      resolution of 800x400 and many apps simply won't scale down to that
                      size. Known issues:

                      * 354681 - Totem takes more space than available on Eee 701SD
                      * 354681 - Rhythmbox takes more space than available on Eee 701SD
                      * 354687 - Evolution setup assistant takes more space than available
                      on Eee 701SD
                      * 354685 - Volume hotkeys take a long time to react with Rhythmbox
                      * 354705 - [Jaunty] Microphone doesn't work at all on Eee 701SD
                      * 354710 - Display preferences takes more space than available on a
                      Eee 701SD

                      There is a workaround for the problem of oversize windows on a small
                      screen. Holding down Alt as you press down on the trackpad (or holding
                      down the left mouse button) allows you to grab somewhere other than the
                      title bar and move the window up off the top of the screen to bring
                      buttons at the bottom of the window into view.

                      * 232170 - Wireless Hotkeys Do Not Function Out-Of-The-Box. A patch
                      is available, however it looks like it hasn't made it into the released
                      kernels yet. This can be fixed manually by downloading and installing
                      linux-image-2.6.28-8-generic_2.6.28-8.27~lp232170apw1_i386.deb. Finally
                      you need to ensure the rfkill-input module is loaded. To do this
                      automatically on boot do this: sudo echo rfkill-input >> /etc/modules
                      * Desktop performance of netbook-launcher is slow using the default
                      settings. To fix this launch gconf-editor and enable
                      /apps/netbook-launcher/force_low_graphics.


                      The older releases still work fine, thank goodness.
