Your comment doesn't make sense to me - just about every message board 
dedicated to the Eee PC has discussions on how to get any flavor of Linux 
or XP to run on the hardware.  Plus, ASUS has released source code in 
response to the GPL issue regarding the ACPI module.  Yes, wireless is 
another matter, but so is wireless on most laptops.

Another OLUG member has had his EEE 4G for over a month, and is happily 
running debian on it.  In fact, he has overcome the CPU speed limitation, 
some sound issues and replaced ndiswrapper with madwifi and improved the 
wireless performance and battery life.
