Kogan promises a Linux Netbook by the end of March

,----[ Quote ]
| Kogan admits he's a big fan of Linux, and that the decision to adopt it was 
| driven by feedback on the Kogan blog. "I was happy that people don't mind 
| having Linux on their laptop. It seems that the wider market is starting to 
| not be as scared of it as it was a couple of years ago."   
| [...]
| On the overall technology selling market, Kogan also remains optimistic and 
| upbeat. "We've gone from being a 4 million dollar company last year to a 20 
| million dollar company this year. We see brands like Hitachi and Fujitsu 
| dropping out of the (LCD TV) market. It's not because of lack of demand. 
| They're dropping out due to archaic business models. People are becoming 
| price educated. The $950 government grant will make the demand for LCD TVs 
| skyrocket. Conventional retail cannot compete."      



Will the NSW Govt put Linux in schools?

,----[ Quote ]
| The NSW Government's release this week of an expressions of interest tender
| to give low-cost laptops to every senior public school student in NSW is a
| big step, but will these systems be Windows or Linux?
| Rolling out from 2009 onwards, the program will mean a whole generation of
| students will be a great deal more technically literate, which can only be a
| good thing. However, the cost per device (only $500) is going to be a
| challenge for vendors to meet.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
