Can Dell and Vodafone play leapfrog with Linux?

| The technology and buzz keep on coming in the netbook space, which consists
| of lower-cost, smaller-size notebook computers (many of them Linux-based)
| that are as much like a smartphone as they are like a PC.
| [...]
| Linux certainly has cost advantages for netbook manufucturers, which
| typically pass savings or technical bonuses on to consumers. Thereâs also a
| real possibility that Linux will have an advantage when it comes to adding
| applications. After all, if you pay $350 for a computer, do you really want
| to spend $100 or $50 or even $25 on applications for it? With Linux, users
| will have the ability to browse, add and, equally importantly, remove
| applications as they wish. Try that with XP. Some vendors, including Xandros,
| also see an opportunity in providing the applications and content that go
| along with netbooks, at least ones that are running Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
