I don't know... Certainly having a touch screen is no guarantee of
success. Microsoft has come out now, with several iterations of
stylus-controlled OSs and none of them are worth using... ;-)

Also, this is no subportable in the normal sense. This is a real
computer at the edge of usable sizedness (sic). With a (nearly)
full-sized keyboard and trackpad, and 3 USB and monitor-out, and a
full-blown OS, I suspect this one can get away without a touchscreen.
I don't view the eeePC as a Newton replacement so much as a desktop

Speaking of this computer, what Linux software, if any, was ever
written for the Newton?
