Yup - EVERYWHERE there are Linux netbooks to be had just not the best
models and reduced choice now. It requires SERIOUS INVESTIGATION BY
THE MONOPOLIES AND ANTI-TRUST BODIED IMMEDIATEL!
You can make regular enquiries and that
helps to notify you of when the rationed stuff arrive.
What the suppliers are doing is criminal.
They are DELIBERATELY restricting high demand goods to
hoodwink shareholders in order to put out micoshaft UNWANTED CRAP.
They have responsibility to shareholders and not sacrifice
one sale for another. Because if they did, they are going
to get their own companies and the directors who participate
in the dock for criminal activity.
If there is demand for Linux, then they should do their utmost
best to promote it and pussy foot around. It WILL get noticed
sooner than later.
