The software seems to work on the eeePC but it is a bit crude.
There is no support for downloading categories from the blog and no styled preview, but it is much more fundamental than that.
But the editor is plain text! With no built in support for bulleted lists, etc. You can insert links, images and tables, but who cares when you have such a limited editor. You cannot even get the windows to layout properly on the tiny eeePC screen.
The firefox plugin ScribeFire works much better and looks like the real solution. The only problem is working offline, but that is a small price to pay.
Spoke too soon. Scribefire also has problems with the small screen and insists on running the main editing box beyond the right edge of the screen. This may be a theme problem though……
