Intel As was already revealed by eWeek earlier this week, the EU has imposed a massive fine on Intel for abusing its monopoly position. The fine is larger than the one given to Microsoft: 1.06 billion EUR, or 1.44 billion USD, opposed to the 899 million EUR fine imposed upon Microsoft.

The one and only reason Linux failed on Netbooks is the Grand Microsoft Conspiracy and facts such as:

- Users booting up netbooks and seeing something unfamiliar
- Users not being able to install all the windows programs that they already paid for
- Messed up Linux installations which failed to support webcams out of the box

played absolutely zero role. Everything was perfect until Microsoft came along.
