Hardware, Embedded Systems We've seen a lot of reports going back and forth about whether or not Linux is doing well in the netbook space. As it turns out, research firm ABI Research as well as Dell say about one third of their machines ship with Linux pre-installed - which is pretty darn impressive.

1/3rd of the geeks with netbooks most likely just buy a Linux netbook just to save some money up front?....

(... and just DIY windows install)

About 1/3 of the Geeks I know have been removing Windows and Installing Linux for years (myself included). Although I suspect some people buy the Linux version and replace it with Windows, I think about 1/3 is close to correct.
