In the News During these financially dire times, it's always interesting to keep en eye on the sales figures of computes, to see if the downward trend is still running. Sales figures from February analysed by NPD indicate that while Mac sales went down, sales of Windows PCs went up. Mind, though, that these figures are US-only.

Same here. Just got my ASUS S101 delivered and it runs Ubuntu. I never once booted Windows on it but it'll still count as a "sure" sign that everybody wants Windows on their NetBooks. :-(

That said, I'm otherwise happily living completely de-Microsofted with a bunch of Macs and Linux computers.

You're almost there. Just gotta get rid of those Macs and you're all set, unless you're already running Linux on them.
