    Yes, the NC20 is really nice, too. Though it's maybe a bit too expensive for me, but looks really great. Is almost a subnotbook imo. Maybe coreboot will be able to run on it, via supports coreboot better than intel for example. www.coreboot.org

    Probably I'd buy it anyway, if it comes without windows.

    By the way, I wrote an email to Samsung and complained about the forced windows. Maybe we can change something, if this do really many people.

    I want the NC20, it has the Nano

    But, like the poster above, I won't buy it if it gets counted as a windows sale.

    What a great netbook... *dream*
    If I could buy it without windows, I'd buy it at once. It is clearly the best netbook available for the price and especially linux users read up on those topics before buying.

    Shame on you samsung that you don't provide this laptop without supporting microsoft.

    Is there a place where I can complain about this?
    Aaaargh... -.-


    I want this netbook, but I won't buy it, as long as I support microsoft with it. Stupid thing. Almost every netbook is available without windows. Only this one it the exception. That's bad luck.

    the 2gb onboard is 1gb onboard with 1gb addon, the 2gb addon means the onboard is disabled.

    I have the MSI Wind. I love it. I did want one that came with Linux pre-installed, just to test out what they're shipping with these. But again, I wanted the higher end specs, and it came with only windows. I got the U100-280us (pink, for my wife and daughter). I've loaded Ubuntu 8.10 and the only 2 things I had to do was download a wireless driver that someone on the msiwind.net forums has as a .deb file. Then I downloaded and built the latest v4l2 drivers to get the bison webcam to work properly with cheese and skype. I'm testing the netbook-remix on it. I'm not sure if I like it enough to use full time or I will just use the normal configuration.

    Someone also makes a remix of PCLinux for eeePc, wind, acer One, and maybe one other netbook. I tried the wind version and the webcam and wireless worked no problem. The icons and things seem to be too small to me and I like Ubuntu better, and the kernel and packages are more up to date with Ubuntu.

    When I get home, I'm going to post my phoronix-test-suite memory benchmarks comparing onboard 1gb, onboard 1gb + 1gb addon, and 2gb addon with onboard disabled, and with overclocked settings.
    I like the factory 24% overclock feature.

    Well, my Firefox 3 works fine in Vista, XP and OpenSolaris so I could only presume it was a distro issue.

    and this one could prove capable of playing some nice
    HD video and feel a bit less underpowered than Atom

    Heh... They might actually have something good going there, finally, with the work they're doing with OpenChrome, etc. If a vendor couples it with a usable WiFi (No Broadcom stuff...), it should be a decent play if the support's "there" for the graphics stuff.

    Binary package hint: firefox-3.0 This is hard to reliably reproduce but frequent enough to be a real nuisance. When Firefox isn't busy right-click apparently works fine. When Firefox is working on another tab/window and the user tries to right-click a link, it sometimes doesn't display the menu but instead just randomly auto-selects one of the options. I've seen this enough now to know it's not just me being daft an rolling the mouse over the selection etc. This is a single unmoved right ...


    since 8.04 installed i have an issue with firefox 3 that when i right click a link in a page then one of the following actions happen: - open the standard context menu for the selected link (this should be the expected behavior). - open the link in a new window. - open the bookmark dialog for the selected link. - open a new compose message in evolution where the message body is the selected link. - perform the "switch page direction" from right to left. strange isn't it ?? any idea ???


    Very, very annoying.
