The biggest story of the week was by far the purchase of Sun, not by IBM but Oracle, which has many FOSS proponents worried about the Open Source projects that Sun is an integral part of.

Not to mention that if you end up with a computer that has Windows 7 Starter Edition, your going to have to learn to live with some limitations. There has been a sighting of a Netbook with Android pre-installed out in the wild and Steven Rosenberg sparks a good ole' fashion desktop environment debate with his "Xfce is light ... but Fvwm is lighter".
