The computing world is pretty much divided into three unequal slices of Π. The turtlenecked sweaters, two piece suits and the all sorts.

The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
