Hardware, Embedded Systems "Asus has big plans for its little laptop and to the dismay of purists and Penguinistas, those plans centre on Windows. The company expects to sell five million Eee PCs this year, and Asus CEO Jerry Shen predicts that 'about 60 percent of these' will run XP rather than the Xandros OS with which the mini-note debuted."

On the 900 model about to ship WinXP comes with 12GB ssd and Xandros with 20GB. That would persuade enough to buy the Linux version and copy/pirate an existing copy of XP onto it.
