Linux fans listen up. Next month TabletKiosk is debuting the TufTab, one of the first UMPCs that'll let you ditch Windows for Linux. The 2-lb UMPC will be semi-rugged (thanks to a rubberized case) and for all you security freaks, it'll come with a built-in fingerprint reader. There's no WWAN, but you do get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a decent 7-inch display. With Windows XP it'll go for $1,699. With Linux it'll go for $1,624, which is still very steep, so you gotta be a hardcore Linux fanboy for this one.
