Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, has struck back at claims made by Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc about Windows' success in netbooks compared to Linux. Most of the claims made by LeBlanc are refuted quite accurately by Canonical's Chris Kenyon in a blog post titled "Microsoft, FUD and the netbook market".

I know I did. SLED 10 was available for my netbook but those models lacked Bluetooth, more RAM, and a bigger/faster HD that the Vista models came with.

It's not far fetched or not understandable. I want good hardware with Linux on it, unfortunately the OEMs seem to relegate Linux to the cheap stuff thinking that no one would possibly want the higher end hardware with Linux. It's a shame really.
