Tip of the week
eeexUbuntu for your Asus eeePC
A lot of people grab their little eeePC, and the first thing they do is to try and make themselves familar, and install Windows. Well, for a screen with a low vertical resolution, making dialogs too large, I recommend a operating system that works better with it. That system is eexUbuntu.

Download it here:
You'll find it extremely easy to install, and even a hardened windows user will have plenty of fun with how easy it is to install a program or game, and take advantage of it. For example, the EEE runs Compiz very well ( youtube video showing it in action here ).

Games mentioned on the podcast:
Tremulous - link
A 3D Shooter based on Enemy Territory
To install using eeeXubuntu for your eeePC:
sudo apt-get install tremulous
(use the terminal, in Accessories)

Warzone 2100 - link
A 3D Shooter based on Enemy Territory
To install using eeeXubuntu for your eeePC:
