Hardware, Embedded Systems It seems Lenovo is being selective in which markets get Linux on its new range of IdeaPad netbooks. "People in most markets Lenovo serves, including Singapore, China and the UK, will be offered the company's new IdeaPad S10 with either Microsoft Windows XP or a Linux OS, but Australian and US computer buyers will only be offered Windows XP according to Lenovo."

Have you ever tried to run an XP desktop on 256MB RAM or less? That's a painful experience, let me tell you.


Yes, almost as painful as trying to run OS X or any modern Linux distro in under 512MB of RAM.
