| It also isn’t a speed demon, but so far with web
| browsing and using OpenOffice, I haven’t found myself
| waiting for anything. One thing to note is that I 
| requested a Linux version of the netbook. It runs 
| “Linpus Lite Linux”, a customized version of 
| Fedora with a very useful dashboard for everyday applications.

| The launch of the netbook was also aided by the 
| progression of Linux, allowing vendors to cut
| out the cost of the operating system as well 
| as customise it to offer a very basic and simple to navigate interface.   
| [...]
| It also seems that, although Linux was 
| originally the operating system of choice for 
| netbooks, the majority of customers are opting 
| for Windows XP versions of the devices.

| Using Linux lowers the cost because the 
| manufacturer doesn't have to pay Microsoft a 
| royalty and it improves performance because 
| it's typically faster and less resource-hungry than Windows.
