Now that the range of Eee PC models includes a variety of different hardware should we restructure this page so that there are separate sections for each 'family'The current structure clearly made sense when just the 700 series existed, and possibly when the 900 came alone, but mixing information about somewhat different 901/1000 models in with the rest makes the document hard to follow and potentially causes confusion.

A: With an official Moblin spin being released, should the focus be towards that? Make sure one release works perfectlyAs it stands now you have recommendations to just install lxde, openbox, etc through YUM.  If you are having people use YUM for additional DE's what base ISO are the supposed to be using?  Netbooks have small HDD/SDD so space requirements come into play.
  
My suggestion for the new structure would be five top level sections headings of 'Introduction', 'News', '700 series', '900' and '901/1000 series', or something like that. Then within each model family section we reproduce roughly the structure of the current document, i.e. a summary of the current state support under Fedora, then specific sections on ACPI, Wifi, etc.  Tips and recommendation could go in family specific sections or in a general section, depending on what's most appropriate.

The information here needs to be shortened. Most people looking for help want to know what *doesn't* work, not an endless repeated list of what does. I hope to update this page and provide better info for new people as Fedora 13 is released.

A: With an official Moblin spin being released, should the focus be towards that? Make sure one release works perfectly? As it stands now you have recommendations to just install lxde, openbox, etc through YUM. If you are having people use YUM for additional DE's what base ISO are the supposed to be using? Netbooks have small HDD/SDD so space requirements come into play.

1. Official netbook spin - follows Moblin/Meego progression with more options available. 2. Custom base/minimal/CLI/revisor spin - users can then use YUM to put what they want on it.

B: Is Chromium going to make it into official releases eventually? Chromium would be the best browser for netbooks.

C: The individual model listings is still too verbose. Are bug reports filed for each of these problems? I only saw one listed as a WONTFIX so that should remain listed here. I think the others could be reported and fixed.
