I intend to purchase an Asus Eee 701 cheap portable computer running Linux OS.
The only program that I shall miss, in changing from my OS Windows XP, is, mobipocket software which only runs in Windows. I would appreciate any help from a Linux user on getting the best use from my bookeen cybook Gen3 using a Linux OS.

If you wait until April 9th (and are in the US), Best Buy will be selling the 701 with Windows XP for $400. This would solve a lot of your problems.
Since the Cybook is a USB device, you won't need to install any drivers. One program I recommend is FBReader. This will let you read your non-DRM Mobipocket ebooks on the 701.

If you just need some Windows program, you can try with qemu or wine.

I have a current 701 with XP installed. The experience is much better with XP and it wasnt too hard to install.
