An Australian company called Kogan (www.kogan.com.au) is preparing to launch its own netbook into the market.
These devices will come shipped with the Ubuntu based gOS. Its good to see that they're not dictated by Microsoft here.
The thing that caught my eye though, was that they said they had also tested other systems on their laptop and were offering to install them if the user wanted. One of the things they listed was KDE4 - amongst all the other Operating Systems they were mentioning. Odd, but hey - they must think its cool!
KDE4 is mentioned at the bottom of this article: Australia's Cheapest Netbook
The specs of the laptop are actually pretty good. The only thing I would say is that they're using a regular HDD, not SSD.
All things considered, its good to see a company of Kogan's size actively push Open Source (and particlarly, KDE4!) into the public's eye. I would be interested to see how these netbooks perform in the real world.
