"The hardware is based on the Intel Atom Processor which will be used in 
the Asus EeePC 1000. If you navigate to /etc/system-release you will 
discover that Linpus is based on a fork of Fedora 8 (Werewolf). That’s 
better. Much better. Fedora has managed to avoid shabby deals with 
Microsoft and playing fast and loose with Kernel source code and the 
GPL. At last, a version of GNU/Linux on an ultra portable you can use 
with a clear conscience"
