Windows Continuing the recently started trend at Microsoft to be a bit more aggressive towards the competition, Brandon LeBlanc wrote on the Windows Experience Weblog about why Windows is such a huge success on netbooks compared to Linux. Also, what is up with that story on AppleInsider about Microsoft offering Windows-7-to-XP downgrade rights? Is that really so special?

I plan on getting two netbooks, wiping Windows XP off and running Ubuntu.


If you buy PC with windows, you support MS, no matter if you wipe out it ASAP ;)

If you buy a PC, you support the OEMs, who support Windows...

Eh? By that reasoning, if you buy a Mac, you support Asus and Intel, who support Windows ;)

I know, I know, stop rubbing it in! ;) But it's the OEM choice, not mine, I can't wait indefinitely for them to put Linux (as announced) on their thing.

I wish all the boxes I promptly erased Windows from would be counted in such statistics ...

True dat...

I am a registered MS partner. ;) I have a number of copies of Windows XP, Vista Ultimate, etc. Supporting Microsoft isn't a problem.

I just prefer Linux for certain things: Servers (Web, Mail, File), netbooks, embedded computers, etc.
