Asus and Microsoft have started a join advertising campaign promoting netbooks with Windows. It basically comes to Asus and Microsoft saying that netbooks are better with Windows - that is, better than netbooks with Linux. "Windows helps you easily get online and connect to your devices and services - without dealing with an unfamiliar environment or major compatiblity issues." Mind that the emphasis is theirs, not ours. Here's the teeth-grindingly cheesy video that's part of the campaign.
It's interesting how a vendor can go from being one of the first computer makers able to market Linux to the non-geek audience, to what we see here today.
