Yes, it is offered with a choice of Windows or Linux pre-installed. They
sell the Linux version for the same price as the Windows version, but
with more storage (solid state drive) for the same price. I'll probably
eventually get an eee PC, but as they work their way upwards with a
larger screen etc. it is approaching the price of most low-end laptops
with a HD.


Some people (myself included) would probably like to be able to do a
single download and "click here" to install, but if there's more to it
than that, at least a "step 1, step 2, step 3" guide to installing it on
a particular platform.
