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".

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.

Boo! Good to hear that they released the unit based on a Linux distro before the usual brand name but booo that you only had the lower hardware specs to choose from. Good also to hear that you can expand the resources. I'm still in the notebook/pda world so still used to a pda minimally expandable; N810 in my case, lots of room to expand the software side but not so much on the hardware side.
