I sure hope so!! Just because Dell has decided to cut the Mini 9s life short does not mean this community should. There is still a lot of life left in the Mini 9 / A90 and I am still baffles why Dell would do something so bass-ackwards. The demand for the Mini 9 / A90 was so high and Dell was constantly out of stock (maybe because they were planning on phasing them out or running specials until their stock had dwindled... but I personally think it was still a poor choice).
I am really hoping the development and great support continues on the forums and that the Mini 9 lives on. It is strange because the Vostro A90 is still available for order from Dell, but the Mini 9 is not.
I do not grasp the logic that Dell is using in this situation... and I probably never will since they always seem to do things backwards. Why kill off something in your product line that is so successful and in high demand??

What he said.
I also don't get it. I got my Mini 9 last Thursday, installed OS X on it on Friday, and it was discontinued on, what?, Sunday?, Monday? Bizarre. It took about two weeks after my order for it to come in, so it seems clear that they were selling lots of these. (Plus they're apparently still selling the Vostro A90, and for less than I paid for my Mini 9. Why?)
I'm sure glad I got mine before they were discontinued. It sure is one sweet little OS X machine for streaming video out onto the deck
