Linux owns 32 percent of netbook market, says study

,----[ Quote ]
| ABI Research is projecting that in 2009 
| Linux will represent 32 percent of netbook 
| sales, far higher than the seven percent 
| figure claimed by Microsoft, says a report. 
| ABI also estimates that Linux will overtake 
| Windows on netbooks by 2013, largely due to 
| sales in less-developed countries, says the 
| story.

| Ok, so much for slogging through a lot of 
| the details. Overall, I like the Karmic 
| Netbook Release better than I did the 
| previous ones. I think it is visually 
| better, clearer, easier to understand and 
| use. Some time ago I set up an HP Mini 2140 
| with UNR for a friend. I will be seeing her 
| again soon, and I will show her the new UNR 
| release and ask if she would like for me to 
| upgrade it for her.

| You have to be prepared to live with Windows 
| XP Home, Windows 7 Starter or Linux and deal 
| with the usual netbook constraints such as a 
| 10.1-inch screen, no optical drive and an 
| Intel Atom N280 processor.



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.
