Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

Moreover, as we can see from the EEPC, OLPC, Everex gPC, hardware vendors shipping popular hardware are actually trending towards custom solution rather than comprehensive offerings like Ubuntu (none of the above is even a derivative of Ubuntu).


The Everex gPC uses gOS.

gOS is a derivative of Ubuntu 7.10, but it uses Enlightenment 17 rather than GNOME as the desktop.

EeePC uses Xandros, which in turn is Debian-based. I believe that there is a "hack" somewhere to run Ubuntu on EeePC.
