ASUS To Publish Full Eee PC Source

ASUS recently made what was labeled as the source code for their Eee PC's Linux OS available for download on their site.  However, it was soon discovered that a part of it was missing, sparking outrage from hardcore coders and cries of violation of the GPL.  In an attempt to clarify and diffuse the situation, ASUS has released a statement about this ommission:

Asustek stated that it has always respected the spirit of the GPL and the failure to make the source code available was due to an omission by one of the company's software technicians. The company is working on publish all the related source code onto Linux forums and will provide downloads, it added.

Mr. Smith
I still haven't seen a proper review of this card, something with ALL the games not just a select few, 3dm 5/6, aquamark, at all resolutions with and without aa/af.

Obvously the GTS outperforms the GT, 10-20fps can be the difference between a game running like butter and a game running like an amputee...

It's all about Feb and the D9E

Im guessing that nvidia locked the least effective SP's on the 8800GT, if so it should clock higher than the new 8800GTS.
