| with a $379 version of its mini-notebook. The point of H.P.’s effort isn’t to
| sell a machine with Linux in all its geeky glory. Linux is simply the base of
| a simplified operating system that H.P. built to support Web surfing and a
| few other applications. Still, if this catches on, it could increase the
| pressure on Microsoft.
