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.

No, you have this backwards. OS is (mostly) irrelevant. It's all about the needed apps. Period.

An OS is useless without apps, and a lousy OS is useful if it's got that important app you need to run.

All this "My OS is bigger than your OS! WHIP IT OUT AND SHOW ME!" BS is by people who don't do anything important on their computer.
