My primary plan for my Eee PC is to use it a mobile blogging tool. But I just had to see if I could install some audio editing software. It turns out the answer is yes. Yes I could.
Color me a little bit shocked that I managed to do this on my first day with my new toy. I had kind of sworn to myself that I wouldn’t install any new software until I had played with everything the Eee PC had to offer out of the box. But where’s the fun in that?
When you first power up the Eee PC, there are about 40 programs installed. One is a sound recorder, but that won’t get you very far if you’re editing podcasts or radio stories. Ardour might be pushing it a bit, so I figured I would try to install Audacity. There’s a simple add/remove programs dialog included, but right now there are only a handful of programs that you can download and most of them are actually just updated versions of the applications that ship with the Eee PC.
