We already knew he was well up on the mobile phone scene, but now it turns out Stephen Fry is also loving the Eee PC at the moment too.
Writing with his customary enthusiasm, Fry’s latest Guardian column has him analysing the pocket-sized wonder-laptop in immense detail – and slagging off Microsoft’s Windows as “expensive, clumsy, costly, ugly, pricey” while he raves about Eee PC’s awesome little Linux build.
The whole piece is pretty much just one drippingly positive review of the Eee, which Mr Fry reckons is “absolutely ideal as a truly cheap, portable, resilient device to slam into a backpack or briefcase.”
Isn’t it great when famous people actually know what they’re talking about? If we bumped into Stephen Fry we would actually be able to have a really awesome conversation about Linux kernels with him.
