That magical "Mi" shell for Ubuntu that HP's built for its new Mini 1000 netbooks is now available for order (as rumored), with configurations starting at $330 for the 9-inch version. Since it's a custom build, it'll take about nine days to ship, but the gift of commercialized open source is forever. If you're still unconvinced, be sure to check out our hands-on look from a few months ago.
