Not going near the XP issue.
What does it take to form a CLUG SIG?? Looks like there is heavy
interest in the Eee.

I'd like one to replace my PDA - but I need to discover/try suitable Apps.
A few 'road reports' of What Works and What Doesn't would help me :-)

Some of the usually hard problems - like data formats, backups and
'sync' - become close to trivial with native IP networking, "real" Intel
Linux and rsync/ssh.
