Windows Let's combine the two most popular topics on the internet today into one: Windows 7 on netbooks. Microsoft has already confirmed that it will ship a version of Windows 7 designed for netbooks, the popular small laptops that appear to be the only bright spot in an otherwise abysmal PC industry climate. However, with various reports indicating that Windows 7 already runs fine on netbooks, this raises the question: what exactly is Microsoft planning?

runs like a charm, installed as dual boot under my Ubuntu OS. So I dont know why MS would want to change anything, and I also dont know why I would want to run it. Lets face it Windows is dying. Who will want to pay for an OS under current economic circumstances if Linux/Open Source does the job for free. We see a clear indication here in Europe where more and more goverments start switching to Open Source to bring down the IT budget. Obviously its just the start of an exodus. Prelude to mainstream.
