Wandering about, it would appear that UNIX aficionados (geeks!) are putting everything imaginable onto the EeePC.

For example, there are people running MacOS X Tiger, MacOS X Leopard, OpenSolaris 2008.05, Ubuntu, and NetBSD on the EeePC. There is a video review of the EeePC which is very informative and well done (even if the video itself is slightly off-color). There is another video describing the EeePC and how to install Ubuntu Linux onto it. There’s even a video demonstration of MacOS X Tiger running on the EeePC. Doesn’t seem to be anything it can’t do.

There’s a NetBSD on EeePC page as well.

This all makes me want to go get one for myself; I’ve been holding off. One of these with a dual-bootable Windows/Linux or Windows/UNIX installation would be perfect – and as it boots off of flash cards as well, perhaps Windows 2000 on flash would be just the thing for me (every corporate doodad requires Windows – VPN, WPA, intranet – ack!).

These machines apparently continue to be quite popular, as this romp through UNIX on the EeePC shows.
