Asus has announced that an SDK for the EEE will be made available, but there are no more details at present. It is not clear what form this SDK will take, and what languages will be required to use it, but, it represents a very positive step that Asus is keen to make the Linux version of the EEE a success, through the promotion of user-developed applications.
“Asus is also pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Eee PC SDK. This will allow for the development on the Eee PC by the OpenSource community making it easy to develop, easy to port and easy to release software for the Eee PC platform. Please check back soon at eeepc.asus.com for more information in the upcoming weeks. We are pleased to work with the OpenSource GNU/Linux community to extend the richness of the Eee PC beyond the standard commercial offerings. “
