The Story behind the Asus Eee PC
 
 

The low-cost Linux running Asus Eee PC began shipping last week in the United States. You can buy the Asus Eee PC 4G from NewEgg and J&R online.

Forbes has an interesting article about how Asus developed the Eee PC. Asus' CEO Jonney Shih was looking for a breakthrough product about a year ago to give Asus another boost.
Apparently the software development took the longest time. Getting the Linux based User Interface right was important and it was the reason for the delays.
Microsoft got their foot in the door at the last minute, so now there will be Asus Eee PCs that you can have with Microsoft Windows for an ultra-low $40 license fee.

Read the full story on Forbes. Via Engadget. This is a great read for a lazy Sunday.
