Linux Carried Along on Netbooks Wave

,----[ Quote ]
| Morvay revealed to Linux Magazine Online that there were no specific figures 
| for Linux netbook sales, but that it lay somewhere in the 40th percentile. 
| Even though this figure seems a little high, it is known that many of the 
| world's netbooks have Linux on board since their first inception 18 months 
| ago.    
| For example, notebooks with Linux make up about 5.5% of the notebook market 
| in Germany...

| I love my little Asus Eee 900 netbook. It's been doing quite well in the 
| world market for notebook computers, and there are more on the way. Mine came 
| with Xandros' really scaled down Linux software, but I loaded Ubuntu-eee 
| instead for a much fuller experience. It's great in tight seating on planes.

| Dukker says about 40 per cent of NComputing's customers have chosen Linux

| (the company uses Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or SuSE) and the remainder have gone 
| with Windows on the host. He is careful to specify that he has no religion 
| when it comes to the operating system - it is entirely the buyer's choice. 
| (Of course, if he were not offering the GNU/Linux option, then he wouldn't 
| have got a run here).     

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
