"Don't blink. Somewhere among the launches of the HP Mini 1000, the business-based Mini 2140, and the ridiculous, high-fashion Mini 1000 Vivian Tam Edition, HP released the Mini 1000 Mi. The difference this time around: the operating system. HP ships the Mini 1000 Mi with a customized Linux distro. Instead of using a more typical Windows-esque user interface, HP decided to make its own.

"HP's version of Linux isn't hard to figure out--in fact, it's very similar to what you'll find in other Linux-based netbooks. Still, it might throw some users for a loop. Instead of a traditional desktop, you start at a home screen, giving you easy access to your music and photos, as well as the Web and e-mail."
