Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

No. It actually is a Chromium feature that was backported from Chrome OS into mainstream Chromium. So was the Apps section and so was Pinned Tabs.
Hm. Chrome OS. There's something that probably won't take off. With the Unity interface, Gnome-Shell, KDE's Netbook Plasma, Maego(Meego? Maemo? wtf is it's name???) and other netbook interfaces (my netbook is just XFCE with certain things I feel are necessary). Chromium can do a lot of things and I don't think a full OS is needed.
I run a Asus EEEPC 701SD (tiny screen, yeah that is the resolution)
Liqourix kernels run quite well on this netbook if you look at my Conky file as far as temps and fan control. Aptosid 2.6.36 does not play well on this netbook though . udev errors on bootup and acpitemp for cpu breaks. It'll boot though and connect ok.
Using some Puppy Linux themes for Icewm. I run Fluxbox also on this machine.
I have a Acer Aspire One ZG5 also Kenny. Run Ubuntu 10.04 on it. This Asus was cheaper. But the bios on Acer sux because it won't boot SD cards with using a pendrive adapter. Also wifi card on it heats up and disappears after hours of use. I like my 2 Asus Netbooks (701SD and 900) better. They are better built IMO.
