I remember the first time I used a netbook. You may do too. You may not remember a lot of details, but you and I can agree that the fact that nothing fits on the damn screen can be annoying.
Well, netbooks have come a long way and app makers have finally adopted interfaces that can be good for netbooks.
One upon a time, most applications were designed for 800 x 600 pixel or lower resolution displays, so of course you could always dig up old programs for your netbook. But a handful of developers are also updating existing applications to optimize them for small screens. Ars Technica has an article on a new version of the Banshee Media Player which has a custom “Cubano” interface designed specifically for netbooks. Banshee was originally designed for Linux, but it also runs on OS X.
