Mine came with a default windows install using up all 4 primary partitions, leaving no obvious way to create a dual boot system.
Also, mine doesn't have Bluetooth, and has a core solo, instead of duo.
Current status: I've been able to install Linux, and have a video-call using skype and using the built-in webcam and wifi.
VGA-out works too.
The MSI Wind12 U200 works with fairly well with Linux, no real problems to report.
