Hardware, Embedded Systems Acer is planning to sell Linux-based PCs to the UK market, the company told On Thursday Acer contacted with the following statement: "At this moment in time Acer UK does not have a PC available with Linux pre-loaded, but we are looking at introducing one in the future." This appears to represent a reversal of Acer's previous statements on the matter, which suggested that the manufacturer had no plans to sell PCs here with a pre-installed open-source operating system.

I wouuld soooo hope for microsoft to ditch the os market.
I feel that they could do way better programs, if they did not focus on operating systems for the desktop.

The operating system is only for running programs as I see it. We so need Microsoft to focus on what they are best at.. Programs and hardware.
