@Can you even buy a netbook with linux (any flavor) preinstalled anymore?
I recently bought an Acer Aspire One (1GB RAM, 16GB SSD) running Linpus (yes, at least until recently, you could still get them!), and yesterday, an Acer Revo 3610, also running the new Linpus.
Also, I am about to order two new desktop PCs from PC Specialist (.co.uk) who let you delete the Windows OS options, The Linux Emporium will sell you a range of desktops, with a range of Linux flavours preinstalled on them, and it seems, more and more places are selling barebones kits, or full machines minus an OS (fairly mainstream like Ebuyer included).
I understand I can buy whatever I like and then put Linux on it, but I want to put my money where my mouth is, and support the Linux pre-loaded (or failing that, Windows not loaded), suppliers!
With regard to Ubuntu and Lametwatspace integration, hopefully it'll either be easy to not install, or to remove, to get back to a "proper" desktop (or even better, Ubuntu will get it, but Kubuntu will not).
