I wasn't even suggesting Nokia offer Linux as a purchase option, just as an after-purchase option for someone that wants it.

It would be different in the same ways the Win7 booklet is different from other windows netbooks, basically styling and the GSM SIM card slot.  not that that is unique, but it is distinguishable from most.

But then, how is that netbook from Nokia going to be different from
netbooks from other manufacturers?
