Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Sunday we reported on an interview with an MSI manager, who stated that internal research had shown that the return rate for the Linux version of MSI's Wind netbook was four times as high as that of the Windows XP version. He claimed that the unfamiliarity of people with Linux was the culprit. This claim sparked some serious discussion around the net, but now MSI's statement is being repeated by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu.

And what do you base your claim on?

A sincere experience maybe?
How is pre-installed Linux hard or unintuitive? If Linux is preinstalled then you can bet that all your network cards/webcams/video card/suspend/sound works out of the box without a single line of configuration or any need to even know that there is a terminal.

Why do you talk about installation? I didn't

A sincere experience from how many years ago? Was it an experience with the Linux installed on MSI wind or some random generic distro that you happened not to like? What makes you think your past experience is still valid today, on MSI's version?

Dude, do you really need to know my resumé to know how to answer my simple statement? Or you assumed i was a stupid moron that don't want to learn, like the majority that have problems with a linux desktop anyway, right?

How do you know i'm not a Gnome or KDE developer? Because such a dev would never criticize linux?
