Interesting. I'm thinking about buying an eee because I don't want
everybody to see my laptop. I travel a lot and I don't show my laptop
at airports and stations but give it use at the place where I go. I
have a 12" packard bell now, and that's my only computer at home (and
lots of windows boxes at work), and the computer I take with me when I
go some place.
Anyway, if you are going to use this small screen is another question,
but if you are going to do it, I think dwm is the best wm you can use.
I gave it a try hardcoding sw and sh to 1024x600 and using it for some
time. It is more than what I thought...

I will let you know what I think if I finally buy it,
