"I contacted HP to ask why it had disabled the Linux command
line interface. HP offered the following statement from Jonathan
Kaye, the Director of Consumer Notebooks at HP:
"The HP Mini 1000 with Mi is designed for the consumer who wants
to do the main activities with their computer such as email,
browsing the Internet, and chatting without worrying about
operating systems or what is inside. HP is focused on the user
experience and developed the HP Mini 1000 with Mi for the mass
consumer market that wants a complete mobile Internet experience
and not just a Linux computer. As this is HP’s first product
with a custom user interface built on Linux, HP is very open to
customer feedback that could help improve the experience."
