Yes, but it's being discussed all over the web as a possible scam, though no one knows for sure yet... Roll Eyes

Guess we'll see soon enough.

Make KDE look like Windows and rename Firefox to Internet Explorer. Problem solved.

I've been calling it Internet AntiExplorer for so many years now that most of my colleagues that still torture themselves using it, are also calling it that... Grin

Me too.

And it still doesn't support xhtml when properly served as application/xhtml+xml (XHTML media type test - results), as I found out when a friend couldn't access my site.  IE just gives a download box.  But I won't re-do it.

So mass distribution will begin around Christmas time.  Smart.  Perhaps if "Daddy is a good boy, Santa will get him one of those".

Well, maybe its time to change the thread title to "Finally Dell, now Asus and HP":

http://apcmag.com/7034/hp_launches_red_hat_linux_pc

Balmer must be steaming! Dell *and* HP, the worlds two biggest PC manufacturers are both getting into Linux pre-installed. The price is very attractive too considering the hardware/software bundle.

This is great! Looks like some momentum is building.    Smiley

New title has plenty of room for more. Come one, come all!

Of course there are smaller players in the picture besides the major manufacturers.
At http://www.madtux.org/ you can get Vector Linux on your shiny new machine.

I thought that deal seemed too good to be true. I mean that's even less money than a second hand laptop with comparable hardware (or even "half" the specs) would cost.

On the web you must always keep in mind: "When something seems too good to be true, it usually is". Especially when money is involved.
