Isn't XP more space-hungry than linux? Or is this how they keep the prices identical even after paying for an OEM Windows licence? Don't get me wrong, as a linux user (some would call me a ******) I don't mind the bonus. It's just that inquiring minds want to know.

OTA brings you crystal-clear, uncompressed HDTV, no simsubbing, and the real SuperBowl commercials. You can't get all that on satellite... OR CABLE.
