Per a news article on C|Net today, If you've got an extra 200 bucks and a penchant for Mandrake Linux, LaCie has got a USB drive for you. Based on the GlobeTrotter device, LaCie's mobile hard drive comes loaded with Mandrakelinux 10.0, the complete OpenOffice suite and a few other nifty Linux apps from Novell.

Just plug the USB device into any old PC and presto, you're running Linux, complete with 40 Gigs of personal data space. Now that beats a *nix-equipped notebook hands-down. As of this moment, however, LaCie has not listed this beauty for sale. We'll just have watch the skies and the local CompUSA.
