Yeah, I'm not sure Asus is going to be supporting Linux much in the future.
They seem to be making more and more plans with Microsoft.

It's taken so long to wait for a nice Linux model, that now I don't want a
standard netbook. I want:
Atom dual-core with hyper-threading (I want to see 4 penguins!)
>=20GB _fast_ SSD
3G modem
10" 1280x980 res
DVI out (1080p)
5 hours battery life
Wireless N
As full size keyboard as possible
Surround sound would be sweet
Full Linux support (including suspend and resume. Yes, resume too please)

And can I get all that for around $500? Surely that's not too much to ask
for :-)
