Low cost Linux PCs

Computer Times - Technology
This is a great idea. S$439 for a PC [no monitor] is really quite a low price. Suited for those that do not need the full Windows experience, plus the brave souls willing to try out Debian. However, one potential problem is getting internet access. There is a linux driver for the Prolink 8000 broadband USB modem that most Singnet users use, its even acknowledged by the manufacturer. But device installation seems not as easy as the usual Windows hardware installation.
