Instructions for installing the packages can be found here : Quoting from the article :

It is likely that we will, over time, make an ISO available, but it is less a market about displacement. If you want Ubuntu, and you want this device, you can simply go and buy it.

Submission + - Dutch Government and Parliament: Open standards in (

Jan Stedehouder writes: "It took a few years, but the Dutch government and parliament agreed yesterday to implement open standards in 2008 according to the "comply or explain" principle. This means that all central government institutions should use open standards from April 2008 onward, unless they have a very good explanation. The new policy isn't just about open standards. When implementing ICT projects open source software should be taken into account as well and should be chosen when at least equal to that of proprietary software."
