So been playing around more with my EeePC 1000.  Still really like it, but I’ve got two major complaints now besides the security issues I’ve mentioned before.

  1. There is NO English spellchecking installed for StarOffice.  The install of StarOffice includes spellchecking for Polish but apparently not English.  I’ve checked all over and that’s it, no English spell checking and no easy way to add it yet.  This is a major problem for me, I’m a terrible speller.
  2. The right shift key is too far to the right.  I’m a touch typist and key placement is important.  I’m used to having the right shift key and instead I hit the up arrow while typing.  I’ll probably solve this by remapping the shift key and the arrow key, but it’s a bad design.  Luckily it’s something I can work around, just annoying.

I really do need to find a solution to the spell check, or bite the bullet and do the Fedora install.
