Hmm, seems to work fine for me. Guess my Atom proc is special or something.
Same here. I watch Hulu and Youtube (high-res glitches a little) videos with no problems in Ubuntu with my Eee 901 (Atom N270). Upgraded my RAM to 2gb and have Firefox running off the RAM disk though so that might help things a little. The system is fast enough I can even play American McGee's Alice in Wine with no slowdowns or glitching. The only limitations and problems I've ever had with my Eee have to do with the small screen size (1024x600). The screen is a little too cramped to edit photos or create graphics on. For a machine I got to type documents and code on I've been constantly impressed with its capabilities.
Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
