"This store only carries the Windows version and I can't get the
Linux one at the same price. Such a dilemma!
"My option is to live with the Windows XP preinstalled version
or to take the time and effort to wipe the drive and install Ubuntu
or Linpus although--I'd probably install Ubuntu 8.04 first to see
how it works for me before trying Linpus.
"So what's my beef with this whole scenario? It all sounds
pretty simple really."
