i have that page open [in another room]. all the asus Eee's
look nice, but i'd like more meaty info on these computers.
since you're already running 8 on the 900, maybe you can clue
me in. what's the speed of your Atom CPU? CAn you run anything
X--(X Window System)? also, how far can you go before you max
out your computer? RAM, SSD? I only want todemo that a freebsd
computer w/ keyboard can be used with the KDE accessibility
apps. tts primarily. something i could use with the festival
i almost choked when i saw the windows touchscreen [heavy]
device for 8000-9000 dollars! i thought, ...er, um, will
the electrons would melt if i told my thoughts! in civil
language, it blew me away. given all the brilliant, open-source
stuff plus reasonably-sized (and *affordable*) hardware, it
seems like i should be able to cobble something together at my
non-profit paradigm for MUCH less than 8K
