Linux netbooks, where???

Here in Australia there is a choice of an ASUS with a tiny screen running Linux or windows netbooks. Obviously we bought a windows netbook and wiped the crap off the drive and installed UNR on it.

@Xbox 360 Exlusive Content

You do realize that the exclusive content will be a paid for add on. Also the ps3 will get extras down the track, no doubt after the $5b time exclusivity deal is done.

Microsoft's 'Vista Capable' appeal thrown out

Vista capable?

When I saw my laptop with a "Vista Capable" sticker. I read it as saying "Stick Linux on this thing and watch it fly!!!"

From my own testing this turned out to be very true.

Re: The licencing issue.

Just wondering if anyone can explain to me how a CUSTOMER can be sued for using an OS with (apparent) patent infringing code?
