No DVD Drive? No Problem!
Here's another reason why I'm not missing Windows XP on my Eee PC: I just discovered that the Eee's bundled media player (SMPlayer) can play DVD movies even without a physical DVD drive. This can be done by copying the contents of a DVD to a removable media (either a large capacity flashdrive or an external hard drive.
Once the files are on the removable media, fire up SMPlayer then from the main menu, choose Open --> DVD from folder... then point it to where you copied the files from your DVD and viola! DVD playback on the Eee without the drive!
