The demise of the Linux Netbook market was IMHO down to the stongarm (no pun intended) tactics of bully boy Microsoft.
"Mr OEM, I see that you are selling PC's without windows pre loaded. You are using that commie thing calld Linux"
"So?"
"Well, the next time your OEM Windows deal comes up for negociation I think each copy is going to cost you $50 instead of $5"
"WTF?"
"Unless of course you stop this Linux foolishness this instant?"
"Yes your majesty. Three bags full your majesty"
