Xterm on the eeepc

I forgot to mention one of the most important things in the eeepc: Simply press CTRL+ALT+T and you get a nice xterm up.

With the xterm up you can do basically anything. If you need root access just use sudo (doesn’t asks for pasword). It even has one of my favourite apps installed, the GNU Midnight Commander. With an xterm and mc on linux, there is nothing you can’t do.
