    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    i read about it on nVidia and ASUS's webpages today. (i was looking for laptops with the 7800GTX, and found this by accident) it was just announced today, so it isnt available for purchase yet

    but most linux-groups tell about problems with turions.
    otherwise found 1 installation, that seems to be bit tricky and tells about "slow running" machine, after install.
    i did a quick google search and came up with this
    seems that it could be the radeon chipsets causing the problems. this should be rectified with the upcoming nVidia chipsets

    thats good, as im planning to get one as soon as possible, and I'll be ordering it without an OS.

    some vendors sell ASUS notebooks aas barebones, so if possible, ill get one soon, and use my existing laptop's RAM, harddrive and DVD drive to get it up and running (assuming they wit fit, theyre pretty standard parts)
