Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu According to Canonical head honcho Mark Shuttleworth, Windows 7 presents the ideal opportunity for Linux to gain significant inroads into the desktop market. He said so in an interview with InternetNews. While I certainly do hope so, an eerie sense of deja vu creeps up on me: isn't this like the 923298th opportunity where Linux is supposed to make inroads into the desktop market?

But Linux did make inroads on both of those occasions. More computers come with Linux now than ever before, and that's at least partially because of Vista and netbooks. What's the problem?

The problem is that NetBooks had made of linux the most uninstalled OS in the planet.


The distributions shipped with netbooks were almost universally garbage and all different... I have an eee 901 which came with xandros and hated the preinstalled os.
