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.

//No matter if the OS you are coming from is pure crap and the new one is pure gold, it's still a pain, and it takes time. //

But that's not the case of going from XP to Linux. It's more like usable, well-supported OS to a geek toy that nobody understands.

XP is only "pure crap" if you're a complete dipshit.
