The lightweight netcat utility can be used to copy large files quickly bewteen machines when encryption is not a concern… and say the nfs gods are not smiling on you today and you don’t want to wait for a ~3 MB/s copy with scp.

I recently purchased an Asus Eee PC to have something convenient to have at work, mostly for web and music. I was thinking I would leave the Windows Starter OS on it and add Linux for dual boot. But after reading some of MS’s EULA, I decided I’d rather not “check the box” and instead install some distribution of Linux.
