Hardware, Embedded Systems I think we can finally put a certain myth to rest that's been circling around the web for a while now. Microsoft often claimed that netbooks running Linux saw higher return rates than those running Windows, but according to Dell, this is utter nonsense.

the big diff is that netherlands do not use english as primary language.

that is, its not about the language on the machine itself, but support and manuals provided. all that has to be prepped for non-english speakers, if dell hopes to sell it outside of the techs that at least read and write english near fluently...
