More distros for the eeepc

Last week I got an eeepc for my wife's birthday. She's very happy with it. Thought I might like to borrow it once in a while, but after trying out the keyboard, it's a no-go for a touch typist like me. But my wife's a normal pc user who still hunt and peck most of the time. She's very comfortable with it. Anyhow... I still wanted to hack the thing. Adding more repo would be the first thing I want to try. One of the page is: http://www.r3uk.co.uk/index.php/home/36-useful-information/79-eeepc-tips-and-tricks. But installing the repos there I find that there is a lot of broken packages where their dependecy is not met. Oh well.. the hunt continues...

Isn't this like how Homer bought Marge a bowling ball for her birthday?

LOL.. :D

I must say that I'd be lying if there wasn't a slight intention in my heart towards that direction. But after using the keyboard, I'm happy to report, that all such intentions are gone. It's just too small for my big fingers. It's very uncomfortable for me. Oh well, maybe I'll be able to make enough money for an X300 later.. :P
