Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

atleast here in Finland even I can't come up with a single vendor providing systems without Windows pre-installed unless you go for Apple, and then you get OSX instead.

Well, I go to ceneo.pl (possibly the most popular and well-known here catalogue of products and online shops), to "laptops" category (noting that a laptop without an OS is the most popular one), pick "no OS" and "Linux" options, and...

...get over 400 products. Similar for netbooks or desktops (just picked the example of laptops since they're most popular now, and typically the subject of local conspiracy theories from ~Linux-faithful - before the see the above search on ceneo)

Now, you're seriously telling us that Finland didn't come up with such web service? That it lags in anything-high-tech behind... Poland?
