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".

Other way around here. Ditched Linux on my A1 in favour of Vista, and later on Windows 7.

I hear Windows7 is a nice update. But, you baught the lower hardware shipping with a Linux distro on it so you could later swap the OS normally shipping with higher hardware specs?

The Windows versions weren't available in this country at the time. Linux-only. Ran Linux for a while, but needed Windows for my university's WiFi (don't ask).

And, well, I prefer Windows 7 over anything Linux has to offer at the moment.

Edit: Mind, though, that I've replaced the SSD with a real hard drive, and upped the RAM from 512MB to 1.5GB.

Thom, which model of A1 are you talking about? The A110L (SSD) or A150L (HDD) ?
