  • Shame

    It's a real shame they took the Redmond shilling and have not released a Linux based version. I could really do some good stuff with one of them !!

  • A Shame Indeed

    I agree, and I had the same thought. I would really like to try one, with various Linux distributions, it looks like it could be pretty nice. But I am not about to buy one, and pay the Microsoft Tax, just to wipe the disk and install Linux myself. I've played that game once, with the ASUS N10J, and although I am very pleased with the results, my conscience still bothers me about it a bit. Not a lot, but a bit.
