Hardware, Embedded Systems Back when the whole netbook thing started, Asus was king of the hill with a focus on netbooks with Linux pre-installed. Since they were kind of popular, it didn't take Microsoft long to start working together with Asus to 'port' Windows XP to the Asus line of netbooks, and with that, to other netbooks as well. The result was that Linux netbooks are now harder to find for many people. While Dell committed itself to Linux on netbooks, Asus has decided to just skip the first date and jump right into bed with Microsoft.

We used to sell crap. It had unfamiliar interface and serious compatibility issues. You couldn't run iTunes on it. You couldn't play your DRM-encrypted porn. Now, we realized our mistakes. Throw your old netbooks away, and get a new one! Pfff...

I'll never buy ASUS netbook/laptop again ;)
