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".

» Adobe Flash player being pre-installed
» Basic media codecs being pre-installed (these add a few dollars to the cost of a PC)
» Extensive hibernate and resume cycle testing (many OEMS have had to develop and implement new QA processes to work with Linux)

Honest question, do the XP netbooks come with these things? I don't have one so it would be good to know if things are even.
