Dell Mini 9: I'm baaack...

,----[ Quote ]
| But lo and behold, Dell has brought back its itty-bitty Netbook for $199 
| until July 27. The price gives you bare necessities: the Ubuntu Linux OS, a 
| 4G SSD, a Webcam, and other basic features.  


Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope Netbook Remix Review

| But wait! While searching the Ubuntu website, I noticed an advertisement for 
| a local distribution known as "Netbook Remix". After delving into the 
| details, I found that this OS was DESIGNED, that's right, designed, to be 
| used on small laptops (much like my Acer).

Quick Guide to Installing Ubuntu on a Mac OSX PC

| Can Linux co-exist peacefully with Mac OSX? Of course it can, and it's my
| opinion there are some real advantages to having both available on your Mac
| system. So, with this beginner article it is my hope that others will be open
| to trying out the power of Linux on their Mac.


Dell is sticking with Ubuntu

| So, what it all adds up to is that, for now, Dell is standing firmly behind
| desktop Linux. I only wish I could say the same about the other major
| hardware vendors. But, down the road, it looks like everyone may be offering
| Google Chrome OS.


Get a Linux-powered Dell laptop for $299

| The real consideration for most buyers is that the Inspiron 15n runs on
| Ubuntu Linux 8.10--a great operating system by all accounts, but no good if
| you need to run Windows apps. (I know, I know, there's always WINE, but I
| don't consider that a viable solution for everyday users. Yell at me in the
| comments if you disagree.)
| [...]
| If you think you'll go that route, I highly recommend spending an extra $35
| to upgrade the Inspiron's Celeron processor to a 2GHz Pentium Dual Core
| T4200. The Celeron's fine for Linux, but a weakling for Windows.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
