What’s this?

Macworld editorial director Jason Snell on his experiences running Mac OS X on a US$350 MSI Wind netbook: “But the Wind is most definitely a system that isn’t intended for heavy use. It could be an appealing second (or third, or fourth) computer in a household, the kind of computer you keep under the couch so that you can pull it out and look up some actor’s name on IMDb. It’s the computer you buy for your kids with little fear of what they’ll do to it. If all you’re doing is reading email, surfing the Web, and maybe writing some basic documents, you’ll probably never notice. But if you try to do more, you’ll probably regret it.”
