Has anyone tried this? Is it worth it for us to create a sub-forum for it? From everything I've read, it seems like a pretty cool device and is kinda in the realm of the other devices we support here.

Thoughts/Opinions?

I left out one thing that makes Eee PC stand out: the community is HUGE. For example, eeeuser.com reminds me of the heyday of palm and its frantic forums.
Although shipments have to be delayed (esp the 8G model), the total number of orders has already exceeded 1 million, growing even faster than iPhone.

That's one of the problems - the forums at forum.eeeuser.com are getting more and more messy. Too many inane - IMHO smile.gif - posts such as:

Has anyone stayed with standard easy mode?
transporting the eee pc
What did you name your Eee?
Availability of 4G colours
are you waiting for the 8GB ??

Not to mention the countless duplicate threads dealing with the same subject. When I first got my eeepc I was hitting the forums several times a day, now it's more like once every several days. A while back one of the moderators tried to reduce the number of duplicate threads and was met with hostility from some users. Meanwhile the problem is continuing to escalate which takes it into a vicious circle - the more crap there is the harder it is to find good quality info so users simply start a new thread instead.

Agreed.

My opinion is we should have a sub-forum for the Eee PC.
Most of the users from eeeuser.com won't find their way to this forum, and we can at least have threads with intelligent content.
