Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, has struck back at claims made by Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc about Windows' success in netbooks compared to Linux. Most of the claims made by LeBlanc are refuted quite accurately by Canonical's Chris Kenyon in a blog post titled "Microsoft, FUD and the netbook market".

Really? Why? It's perfectly unexpected these days. Even Wireless support is pretty good these days. I'm using a HP laptop which I bought with Windows Vista pre-installed, I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on it as soon as I got it home and it's all working. I didn't even try to be picky about the hardware much as I was confident that it would work.

Look, even Syllable stands a pretty good chance of working on an average PC these days, let alone Linux!
