Tablets may be the new gizmo du jour, but I can't see them taking over... to me they seem to be like a different thing altogether for different functions. This is an actual computer with Debian Linux installed on it, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

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
