    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    I have a dell that works fine. http://www.linux-laptop.net/ is a good site to look at. It seems, the more new and cool it is the harder it is to get linux working.

    Hi Vergil,
    I know about that site but it is dated. I was wondering from real people that have had success on brand new hardware. I have actually had great success at Toshiba's with the exception of the modem and the 3 d graffics card.

    I did hear recently that dell is now shipping with Linux and/or no OS.

    as of right now you can only get a Dell with no-OS(really it comes with an OS just its free DOS instead of windows). but they have said they will offer Linux soon but i have a feeling it will be difficult to find on their site like it is now.

    here it is;

    took me a bit to find you have to go to the small business section to find it. you can get the open source desktops here;

    Thanks dude. I appreciate it I might pick me up a new lappy. Linux rules.
