The real question is when is some on going to post a torrent of the install/restore discs from Dell. I wanted the Mini with Ubuntu but could not wait for it to ship. I really want to check it out.

I didn't want to wait for the Ubuntu version either but if they release a dual core Atom version with Ubuntu I will order a second Mini Until then I can just use my Knoppix Live and vmware to bridge the gap.

From what I am hearing, the dual core Atom proc will not be released until the end of the year maybe February. You may have to wait a bit.

If some one can rip it, I'll happily host it here.

Just pm me and make sure its not this:

but Dells modified version!

(this is of course, making sure we're allowed to distribute it, but I cant see how not)


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

I am searching for it high and low. Once I find It, I am going to put it up on The Pirate Bay or Demonoid. Even though I work at Dell, I have no way to find this internally...which really sucks.
