Tho' they show it "Out of Stock".  I dunno if they 'encourage' netbook 
sales anymore.

I have their original Terra. 
It came with Ubuntu 9.10 and I've since upgraded to 10.04 LTS.  It's 
been rock solid -- good battery life -- and, being a netbook, I have no 
complaints about it.  It, too, shows "Out of Stock".  But, I'd guess my 
model is really "No Longer Sold."
