It wasn't a discussion, it was more of a gluttonous extravaganza of name
calling and finger poking, lol.

It's interesting that the Linux and XP models are the same price,
considering that the XP one has double the ram and double the SSD, and
Linux is Free.
Perhaps Dell is simply trying to offload stock over the silly season, and
the XP prices will go back up afterwards ?
Anyway, now is your chance to get a slow, lacklustre, dog of a XP on a
Dell netbook for the same price as a Linux unit!
Santa has been either good or cruel to you for all your trolling,
depending on your point of view :)

Obviously Dell pays at least minus (-) $30 for XP, and can use the cash
to add specs ;-)
If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to. Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
less by definition, *promote* ignorance.
