Amen, my brother.
Granted, I'm not their target market, but the OLPC/Eeee variants just 
confuse me.  The Via chip takes me back to when it was much cheaper to 
build your own pc and you had a choice of Intel, AMD, or Cyrix.  To me, 
Celery (Celeron) is a dirty word.

The things don't seem to do a lot more than my Treo (with its 4g SD 
card). [if there's anybody else using a Treo sync-ing with linux, please 
contact me]

At least it's not just me this time :)
