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.

Linare = freeloaders
by CharAznable on Sun 8th May 2005 16:09 UTC

Linare always seemed to me like freeloaders that leech off the OSS community to make a quick buck. While there's nothing wrong with that, I think you are morally bound to make a honest good faith effort to put out something decent or at least add value at some point. Linare just take FC2, change the theme, and stick it on white box machines, and then fail to provide adequate support. Hardly a good faith effort.
