So I bought myself this netbook… whee, new toy.  I’m partly typing this to get used to the smaller keyboard.  It’s a little tough but good enough for its purpose.  It is the Acer Aspire One, 2.2lbs, 8.9″ screen, 512Mb RAM, 8Gb SSD, Linux.  I would like to get more familiar with Linux, so this will give me a reason.
