| As this is the holiday season, and things

| follow up on some very good advice that Jake 
| gave me, and learn to produce blog entries 
| with pictures. Of course, there is no better 
| way to start than with the specific subject 
| that Jake (and others) said they would like 
| to see pictures of, so here is a quick 
| review of some of the most common Netbook-
| centric Linux distributions.

| Overall I am quite impressed with the KDE 
| Netbook desktop, and I am anxious to see how 
| its development continues. The last I heard

| early 2010, so I will be watching for that.
