    I don't quite get how they're doing that on the 20GB, Asus say they're
    distributing the 900 with XP on a 12GB SSD, the Linux version has
    20GB. Unless BT are using a custom image to get around the spec/
    pricing. Sneaky bastards if they are.

    OOXML traps shoved along with GNU/Linux laptops? Didn't Microsoft see Office
    sales decline?

    I'll go all-in and bid a flock of MS MVPs, the Vole's entire collection
    of shill minions, and Ballmer's shiny new Apple laptop that he uses to
    misspell his presentations.

    > (Why do I get the feeling we're bidding down, not up?)


    That's the general idea, although Ballmer's new Mac is, as they say in
    the MasterCard ads ... priceless. Then again, he probably just got it so
    he could use an OS that actually supports his iPod properly.
