Linux netbook thieves ignore laptops

By on

Elonex web books that are preloaded with Ubuntu Linux and currently featured at Carphone Warehouse in Bracknell, UK are apparently is such high demand that thieving opportunists stole a display model.

The netbook display item was lifted from a shopping mall Carphone Warehouse store in broad daylight by using bolt cutters to sever the stranded wire tiedown.

Several larger laptop PCs preloaded with Microsoft Vista sitting in the same shop display area were reportedly left unmolested in the heist.

As the individual who posted this news item on the Ubuntu UK mailing list observed, "Even thieves don't want Vista." (c) 2010 Incisive Media
