EEE PC Browsing Home Network

It wouldn't have any killer apps if they were not right about the "Easy to Use" claims. Like my own preferred MEPIS Linux, Xandros has everything a typical workstation user wants, all pre-set up; no config fiddling. Here it's just automatically found my home SMB network after I logged into the home WiFi and I can browse through server files. The WiFi and Ethernet connections have "just worked" everywhere I've tried. So has every USB key and USB-based hard drive I've plugged in, although it can only read my 200GB NTFS drive.
