Ah, this link you should have started with :)
This is the first time I read about "MID". As you may have noticed in
the name, this project is about making Debian run smoothly on Asus
Since it seems to run on Intel Centrino, you will be able to install
Debian on it without any problem.
Supporting the wireless card is another story. The spec page above
does not say anything about its manifacturer/chip so I can't tell you
Its the think Ubuntu/Fedora/Intel have been working on...
These things are the future I think...
Thanks... I was hoping, because the Ubuntu/Moblin solution is not really a
full linux as such, its more like a prepacked kernel... so as far as I can
tell, there is no real linux on MIDs yet... just "Cell Phone type
kernels"... ie its running linux but its not behaving like a linux... the
user is not going to apt-get... unless they pay I guess ;)
Debian would look might pretty on it ;)
I was hoping.... its wide open still... if debian feels like beating
