comment Most user-friendly (and speediest) Linux flavour for a netbook
On my 701, wifi worked out of the box (no need to install any non-free drivers). The only problem is that rfkill does not work correctly due to bug bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/354878

comment Other benefits of 64-bit OS apart from memory expansion?
ashh: that is because the benefits and drawbacks of 64-bit operating systems are all very technical. At least on Linux, for nontechnical end users there is almost no noticeable difference (even I constantly forget whether the machine I'm using is a 64-bit or a 32-bit one); on Windows, there are more incompatibilities and oddnesses to deal with on 64-bit, but other than that again a nontechnical end user will hardly notice the difference.
