Linux goes mainstream

You don’t get much more mainstream than coverage on the beeb. Linked from the front page no less. Now if only Dell could do that so people could find and buy the systems… (not that anyone is buying Dell anymore right?)

I have noticed that most of this new breed of cheap sub notebooks from the Eee and OLPC onwards tend to come with Linux installed. And there seems to be hundreds of them now. Perhaps one day PC World will catch on and start stocking them, I believe one of the most likely places to get an Eee when they were (are?) scarce was Toys-r-Us.

Anyone else got one of these new cheapo things?

I’m very pleased with my Eee, looking forward to trying to justify getting the 900 which has a more usable screen size.
