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.

I'm dual booting FreeBSD 5.3 and SuSE 9.3 Pro on my Vaio and they both work great. *nix tends to lag behind a bit on features on laptops because of all the closed hardware, but if you're willing to get one that's a little older and not "state of the freakin art" you can get your *nix of choice to run just fine on it.
