Hardware, Embedded Systems Last month we covered an article titled, "MSI: Wind Doing Well, Linux Version Not So Much" which revealed that Linux MSI Wind netbooks saw a return rate upto four times higher than the Windows equivalent. But in a recent interview with the CEO of Asus he revealed that Linux and Window versions of Asus Eee PC have similar return rates. He also described the plans for 2009 and talked about some changes to come in the Operating System for the netbooks.

Hello? People want netbooks because they're small and cheap. I for one do not want to lug around a regular laptop just for casual web browsing when I go shopping (for price comparison research, etc.).

You actually carry a laptop with you when you go shopping at brick-and-mortar stores?

Ever heard of ecommerce?

Ever hear of "no credit card"?

Online shopping in the Philippines is a joke.
