No, it's open wifi around the downtown area. Not sure who supports it -
local businesses maybe. Nothing to sign up for but the few times I tried it
it was hard to connect to but could have been location/hardware.

I kind of like the xandros OS on the eee - simple and straight forward but
it is lame if you are looking for more. I like the Ubuntu version on the
dell mini 9. It has a similar easy lauch bar but better and it's easy to
turn off and on. Plus is regular Ubuntu to boot. Not sure if you can install
it on an eee or anything else though.
