Netbooks to Make Up 90% of PC Market, ARM CEO Says

,----[ Quote ]
| "Although netbooks are small today â maybe 
| ten per cent of the PC market at most â we 
| believe over the next several years that 
| could completely change around and that 
| could be 90 per cent of the PC market," the 
| ARM CEO, Mr. Warren East, says. "We see 
| those products as an area for a lot of 
| innovation and we want that innovation to 
| be happening around the ARM architecture."


Answering a Friend About Ubuntu on a Netbook

| Ubuntu wordmark officialImage via Wikipedia
| This post is directed to a friend that 
| asked about getting a new netbook and 
| putting Ubuntu on it. Facebook ate my 
| homework and gave me nothing but a server 
| error in response, so I decided to put the 
| answer up here and just send him a link.
|     Thinking of installing Ubuntu on a 
|     Netbook we're going to buy as I've 
|     heard it's pretty lightweight in 
|     comparison to Windows 7. What are your 
|     thoughts on this in general? Also, it 
|     is free right?
| First of all, I want you to know that I use 
| Ubuntu every day. All of the computers in 
| my house (and there are many of them) use 
| Ubuntu or some relative (like Debian). Not 
| only is it free (as in liberty), it's also 
| free ($), and it does everything that I 
| want and more, though there's sometimes a 
| little pain involved. My experiences with 
| Windows don't involve any less pain, though 
| the part of the eye the needles get stuck 
| into isn't necessarily the same.
