Tom has just exploded a little bit over an article in El Reg about netbooks.
Give me a command line. Give me Vim. And leave me the hell alone. Versioning? Install Git.
I have to agree. Last Christmas I managed to get a reasonable amount done with vim and git, on a netbook, on a train, with no Internet connection (and I was graphics programming!)
These things may be small, but they are almost as powerful as the workstation I have at the office (and don’t have the overhead of Windows and a chunky persistent virus scanner).
