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.

What did you expect for a $500 notebook? It's pretty obvious exactly what corners Linare cut.

A simplle/decent manual & restore CD would probably kill off at least 50% of their support requests. e.g. My macs/powerbooks/ibooks come with decent manuals and I've NEVER used their support line, but then again, I've never used support line for any computer product...

(Did you try google?)
