    Asus eeePC violates GPL say Linux stalwarts

    Members of the Linux community have complained that the hot new sub-notebook from Asus, the eeePC, may have violated the spirit of the Linux General Public License (GPL). Some Linux advocates claim the eeePC has not included required source code with the installed Xandros Linux distribution and does not easily enable users to install another distro. However, there are indications that eeePC fans probably don't care.

    It has nothing to do with RM but everything to do with Xandros/ASUS. I'm not keen on Xandros anyway.
