Here comes summer's first Linux netbook 

I have been watching the Net Book market and as the prices fall they become more desirable all the time. My initial wariness of units with only solid state drives has subsided and I would even consider one of those even though most are 16 gigs of disk space or less. In any case I found this latest review interesting and thought I would pass it along.

Reports of the Linux netbook's death at the hands of Microsoft have been greatly exaggerated. A flood of Linux netbook news will be made next week at the Computex trade show in Taiwan, but, after Intel announced the beta of Moblin 2, HP has decided not to wait and made an important Linux netbook announcement this week.

HP announced that it was releasing a new netbook, the HP Mini 110, that runs Ubuntu Linux 8.04 with HP's easy to use Mi (Mobile internet) desktop interface. It will also be available with XP Home, but, for once, the Linux powered model looks to be the more compelling buy even if you don't care for Linux.
