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.

Of course not, but it sure is a good indication. With searches, I at least have *some indication* of its popularity. What do you have? Do you have any counter proof or proof that your favorite distro is more popular?

Do you even know what you're talking about? You admit liking Canonical-fighting news yet so far you, or anybody else for that matter, have only been able to criticize Canonical for contributing little to the *kernel*, while totally ignoring Canonical's contributions to the desktop area.

you forget Mark Shuttleworth speach at EuroOSCON....


So what about his "speach"?
