,----[ Quote ]
| Psystar's OpenLite system ships with the Ubuntu Linux desktop preinstalled,
| running on a 1.8-GHz Intel Celeron chip with integrated graphics support.
| Upgrading to a dual-core Pentium chip costs an additional $40. "With
| unparalleled affordability, this computer can bring Windows computing into
| every home and office," Psystar boasts on its Web site, even though the
| system runs Linux, not Microsoft Windows.

Cheap Laptops Bad for Vista, Good for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The good news for everyone is that you can get a good, solid laptop for under
| a grand these days. The bad news for Vista users is that many of those
| laptops, even though they're sold with Vista, have nothing like enough
| resources to run Vista decently.

| Total additional cost? About a buck for the burnable DVD for the Linux
| distribution. It's not a matter of "if," it's a matter of when we're going to
| see more Linux-powered laptops.
|
| Do the math. Vista doesn't work for today's laptop market. XP and Linux do.
| It's really that simple.
