Linux's share of netbooks surging, not sagging, says analyst

,----[ Quote ]
| Reports that the Linux netbook is dead or 
| dying are incorrect, at least globally, 
| according to an analyst firm.
| Nearly one-third of the 35 million netbooks 
| on track to ship this year will come with 
| some variant of the free, open-source 
| operating system, ABI Research said. The 
| exact split is 32% Linux versus 68% Windows, 
| said Jeff Orr, an analyst at ABI, which 
| works out to about 11 million Linux netbooks 
| this year.
| That number contradicts third-party market 
| figures, trumpeted by Microsoft, that showed 
| Linux shipping on as few as 4% of U.S. 
| netbooks.


More Microsoft âstoriesâ? â The stats Microsoft doesnât mention.

| And with Netbooks retailing under $400, compared to Microsoft Intel makes
| hardly any profit at all.  So Microsoft has to die.
| This is a huge change for Intel, which has for decades acted as Microsoftâs
| bitch, doing pretty much whatever Redmond demanded for fear of being
| written-out of the next Windows PC hardware spec in favor of AMD or even IBM.
| But that was the old Microsoft.  The Microsoft of today isnât nearly as
| powerful, whether they yet know it or not.


Analysis: Intel rides Wind River beyond the PC

| Intel Corp.'s acquisition of Wind River Systems Inc. is another indicator of
| the sea change occurring inside the world's biggest semiconductor makerâalong
| with the rise of Linux across all markets.
| The x86 giant is expanding beyond big custom processors for its core desktop
| PC market and into a variety of system-on-chip (SoC) designs targeting a wide
| range of mobile, consumer and embedded markets. The industry-wide shift to
| multicore processors is also driving a need for a whole new set of parallel
| software tools.


Intel buys Wind River: the End of the Wintel Duopoly?

| Obviously, Intel has to tread carefully here, since it can't trumpet that
| Linux side too much, but the reality is rather stronger than those neutral
| statements would suggest.
| When I interviewed Wind River's Chief Marketing Officer last year, here's
| what he said when I explored the Linux angle...
