After a couple of days with it, I think my main woe with the Eee and Fedora (bigger than the wireless) is Inkscape on small screens and this is a problem I knew before the purchase (testing Inkscape on my desktop on 800x600) and a problem which is not directly related to Eee, it can be found on any small display:
The small problem is the lack of vertical space, the main toolbar has fixed height and is too high, you can't access the color swatch at the bottom or the useful tools in the status bar. The bigger problem is that the maximized window do not fill (horizontally) the screen. You have to unmaximize it and resize manually. And do this each time you start the application, as it does not remember the window geometry.
