BYOBU
#1
I like using byobu as my terminal of choice.  After installing it I would have expected a shortcut to be created as it is on all other distribution of linux I use.

However, one is not created, or is not visible.  Anyone experience this issue?

Well this is an easy fix, and I am sure it will be fixed in a future revision of the Os. I just hope that Asus can get enough of interest to support it better.  I know I am watching the product close and doing some extensive digging into the device.  I have discovered several features and differences that th completer does not have.  However, this competitor has a wide support that is mature and have fantastic members who know the devices well.  

Several things were wrong.  I did the following to fix it.

1. The existing file is a broken symlink, you first need to fix the symlink or simply copy the .desktop file  cp --remove-destination /usr/share/byobu/desktop/byobu.desktop .

2. I had to change the Exec line to Exec=env TERM=xterm byobu
3. I had to add Terminal=true



Time will tell, and even if the support is smaller then the others in the market, this device has some potential that I have already found uses for.
