Re: EeePC - to Fedora or not?

I use laptops mostly to connect by WiFi to a server desktop,
which holds my email and runs a web server.
I also keep most files on another computer,
which I access by NFS.

I haven't found any mention of NFS or even ssh
on the EeePC so far, but I guess they must be there somewhere.
Also I'd like to have an xterm or konsole window,
but I don't see that either.
I don't really want to use Star Office to write documents;
it seems to take rather a long time to open for one thing.

At the moment I'm not sure if the applications I want
are not there, or just that I haven't found them yet.

I don't actually mind the keyboard.
My favourite computer for all time was the Sony Picturebook (C series)
which if anything is a bit smaller.
