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.

In multimedia and publishing industry Apple Mac OS X has always been very popular.

quick guess, adobe photoshop first showed up on a mac running a earlier os version.

so the old hats at computer aided graphics work gets to know both the program and the os intimately.

then they teach the next gen how to operate this.

and things go as they often do...

first time i spotted a mac in real life was a older one hooked up to a scsi scanner in the photo department of a local newspaper. i suspect the scanner was able to scan negatives.

i suspect its much the same that keeps ms office in use. that, and that ms office have become more of a RAD then a office suite the last years or so, thanks to integrated visual basic.
