    I had my employer buy two of these. They replaced two well-known-brand computers that failed to run Ubuntu Linux upon attempting to upgrade to version 12.04. In contrast, the Limbos have run Ubuntu 12.04 with no problem from the start; it's such a time-saver to not hassle with incompatible hardware. Opening up the cases, it looks like they would be easy to work on to add or change components; that's always nice to see, and is a sign of a manufacturer thinking well about their customers.

    The ZaReason Limbo is, in three words, an outstanding machine; a simply outstanding machine that can easily handle any work load ranging from that of the average household user who’s just surfing the Web to the constant tinkering and tweaking by the most restless Linux user (to the latter, I plead guilty). Ruggedly built and with a clean design, the desktop fits in nearly any location in the home.
