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 burned me too

I too was frustrated by the way Linare was handling my order. After about 6 weeks I simply cancelled my order. I was tired of their staff telling me "it will be shipped on such-n-such day" and then being disappointed when I didn't receive a tracking number. I remember having to call them over and over, plus send unhappy email messages to them, in order to get an explanation. I do NOT RECOMMEND purchase from Linare.
