Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Sunday we reported on an interview with an MSI manager, who stated that internal research had shown that the return rate for the Linux version of MSI's Wind netbook was four times as high as that of the Windows XP version. He claimed that the unfamiliarity of people with Linux was the culprit. This claim sparked some serious discussion around the net, but now MSI's statement is being repeated by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu.

Personally, I am of the opinion that linux belongs on geeks machines and certain classes of servers and nowhere else, that windows belongs in the workplace, and that OSX belongs in the home. It is easy to illustrate the epic failure of each OS outside of those zones, and easy to talk about the strengths of each inside of them.


I use OSX on my work laptop, Windows on my home game machine...

...alright, I admit, you got me, and Linux on my geek machines.
