    Yea, it seems like the tablet functionality for Linux out there is very scarce. Has Linux caught up to anything? There was always a battle over standards because everyone wants to be different. Of course team work never works that way. I heard that recently there has been an agreement on standards. I wonder how that is going to work out.

    Have you seen the prices?? Wow. But I read that people are buying them. Who would of known people would be willing to spend hundreds to have Linux on their laptop.
