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.

Right, and they still think they are ready for the Desktop.

We really need to release Haiku R1/alpha ASAP ;)

To be fair, This attitude is very common among users of any OS that isn't Windows.
