I most certainly hope I'll still be able to have a netbook a few years down the road. I've yet to meet a tablet that I'd drop my precious eeepc for.
The initial eeepc came in winxp and linux flavours:
They had to upgrade the win box to 1 GB to make it usable, the linux box with half as much was nevertheless more performant
