This could have been an opportunity to further develop the Amiga's operating system..compact, secure and very, very powerful. But this is about corporate interests, isn't it..rather than helping people.

It's a crippled down version of Windows anyway. And XP will be sold only as such probably, even with higher prices. If MS did a better job with Vista, maybe they'd not have to go to these lengths. I'm all for linux here!

Since they're not going to play games or use CAD software on the machines, why would they even need Windows?
And why does the dual-boot version costs more when Linux is free? It's like the Linux cost $4 - ridiculous.

I read that the air force was hoping to build an army of bot PCs...wonder if they have been contacted to subsidize this project.....
