Linux When I read the article on Slashdot & OSNews that Linare was putting out a sub-$500 notebook, I immediately jumped on the deal. I purchased a laptop directly from Linare in early February. Their site stated that I would receive the laptop in 2-4 weeks. I waited in anticipation.

RE: sorry

all I can say is LOL
Sorry for being blunt, What do you really expect? everything in this world is usually cheap for a reason...

I had 3 distinct expectations from this purchase in addition to the laptop.

1) Delivery time that corresponded with the stated time on the web site
2) Manual w/ basic instructions
3) Restore CD

I don't think my expectations were unreasonably high.

For all that will flame me, I'm not talking shit. I am not bitching or whining. I am just writing my experience with Linare. Perhaps others have had the opposite experience.

I just feel more information should be out there about this company since there currently is little (aside from their press release for $500 notebook) out there.
