I'm using for my daily business as a head of a development department 
a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop with FreeBSD 7.0 and KDE 3.5.8 (including
OpenOffice 3.0beta); I cloned this system binary (i.e. made packages of
what I have installed on this laptop) to a Asus netbook eeePC 900 to
have the same suite of tools with me while walking around in my spare
time; this is working just fine; and the FR is the ideal gadget to complete
the eeePC to have it as a GPRS router to Internet, cellphone, etc.
here you have a picture of both:

I've already returned my old BenQ cellphone to my company and I'm fully
depending on the FR, which I think is stable enough to rely on it;
