[News] GNU/Linux Sub-notebooks in the News Again, Good Year Ahead

Odds and ends

| My forecast: netbooks are going to get even hotter in 2009 
| as buyers turn to affordable PCs with decent performance 
| during an economic downturn. An alliance to watch: Acer and 
| Canonical. As good as its netbooks are, Acer could benefit 
| from Ubuntu, one of the most popular and user-friendly 
| Linux distributions. Canonical, Ubuntu’s sponsor, stands to 
| gain from a sharp rise in its installed base that a 
| bundling deal with Acer would bring. What are these two 
| waiting for?

| The term is vaguely defined, but the best way to spot a 
| netbook is to peek at the specs: Today's bigger laptops run 
| on Intel's speedy Core 2 Duo processor, while netbooks use 
| a smaller, less powerful, and cheaper Intel chip, the Atom. 
| Netbooks also run older or more lightweight operating 
| systems—generally Windows XP or some flavor of Linux.
