Hardware, Embedded Systems Acer has stated that it will be pushing Linux aggressively on its laptops and netbooks. The company is already heavily promoting Linux for its low cost ultra-portable netbook range out later this year, but senior staff have said that Acer will also push Linux on its laptops. Acer has already started selling Linux in its Media PC business but this should now spread, according to Gianpiero Morbello, vice president of marketing and brand at Acer. "We have shifted towards Linux because of Microsoft," he said. "Microsoft has a lot of power and it is going to be difficult, but we will be working hard to develop the Linux market."

"if the linux community itself understood the concept of ecosystem we wouldn't have all of these distros. There would be one OS called Linux and you could play with it any way you want but it wouldn't be an official linux OS."

We could call it PCLinuxOS ;)
