Asustek noted that after testing the company gained many comments. Thus, it decided to add Linux-based software applications to the Eee PCs. This is the major reason the company is pushing back the launch of the products, said the company. Asustek indicated that it expects to ship Eee PCs soon, adding the launch should be no later than that of the One Laptop per Child (OLPC)'s latest plan in November.
Despite the plans to add additional software to the Eee PCs, Asustek stated the cost will remain the same.
