screen rotation: ?? who cares. No actual reason for it. And in any case, screen rotation is managed by xrandr, which means it is a function of the video drivers. Which means that it is not a separate issue. The button is easily caught and mapped to xrandr.
Sim card slot: There IS NONE.
Fedora 12. Ubuntu is too useless for me.Out of what box? Ubuntu?
So? I'm sure that ubuntu doesn't ship with all of the multitude of windoze drivers pre-installed, and I certainly wouldn't taint my system with a windoze driver.Ubuntu does ship with ndiswrapper drivers.
Can you not read? I already said ATH9K. That is the driver used by the wireless card on this device. It is sitting right here in front of me working wireless network using ath9k.But maybe there has been a new FLOSS driver recently?
aside from video acceleration and touch screen (poulsbo drivers work up to xserver 1.6, not in 1.7 -- I'm sure I could just downgrade the xserver to 1.6, but since vesa serves my needs just fine, I won't bother wasting my time with that...), yes, it IS COMPLETELY WORKING 100%.So it isn't completely working...
Might want to do a little more research on that pal.The only different is the multi-touch screen and the size of the SSD drive.
No there isn't. And since you don't have one of these and *I DO*, you are not qualified to say -- but I am.Open up the buttom of the netbook. There is a SIM card slot.
Even if there was, it is a totally useless thing to have. Like I'm going to pay for an additional data plan for every portable device I own. No, I'm certainly not going to do that. I'm just going to pay for ONE data plan for MY PHONE (which is *always* with me), and plug it into whatever else I happen to be using at the moment. This, of course, uses standard USBNET driver.
