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: bah, worthless review and reviewer

Since you thought it's deserving to defend it, I have to conclude that this review is even more worthless than I thought at first.

Defending it? I wasn't defending it. I was just attempting to provide further insight.

This information is useless as it applies to you only.

True, but it doesn't mean that no one else would have the same problem. Once again, I was just trying to put out more information out there. When I google'd before buying I found NOTHING!

It also shows your character: you were told that the laptop will be shipped within 4 weeks, yet you felt the itch to send an e-mail after 3 weeks.

The page said 2 to 4 weeks. My card was charged immediately. I had not recieved ANY information from these guys. The inquiry on the third week was just asking if I would get a confirmation e-mail or something. I don't think I acted incorrectly in asking, I mean I had nerver heard of this company before the postings on Slashdot/OSNews.

In any case, review it is not.

You've been talking a lot of smack about my review without any substance.
