It's running gOS as well - if you haven't used it yet, I recommend you
install vmware-server and take a look at the VMWare image from
http://www.thinkgos.com/index.html

It's a very, very light-weight linux that uses googleapps as the
word-processor/spreadsheet etc and has links to all the web2.0 apps you
could ever need.

You can (of course) install your own software on it as well andit looks
really nice! :o)

Cheers,

M.
