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.

No recovery disk. NO problem.
Pop in a KNOPPIX disk see if all your hardware is properly found, or try the XFCE 4.2. live CD at http://www.os-works.com also based on KNOPPIX.
