My Eee PC 1000H is currently running Windows XP, so I haven’t had a chance to check this out for myself, but Sascha at Eee PC News.de reports that there’s a new version of Xandros available for Eee PC 701 users.
Xandros 1.6.1 adds a few new icons and programs to the easy mode launcher, including an Eee Connect feature, which looks like some sort of remote desktop or VNC client. The latest version of Skype for Linux is also included, which means you can make video calls without problems. There are also two new additions to the OpenOffice.org suite: OpenOffice Math and OpenOffice Draw. For some reason you’re still stuck with OpenOffice.org 2.0.4 instead of the more up to date OpenOffice.org 2.4.1.
