Hardware, Embedded Systems We've seen a lot of reports going back and forth about whether or not Linux is doing well in the netbook space. As it turns out, research firm ABI Research as well as Dell say about one third of their machines ship with Linux pre-installed - which is pretty darn impressive.

Piracy.

Indeed. It's difficult to come up with good reasons for *not* just picking up the phone and calling the BSA (1-888-NO-PIRACY) when one sees this happening. Rampant piracy of closed source software is one of the most major hurdles to FOSS adoption, and to achieving a sane software landscape, in general.

Pirates need to start feeling that they might really get caught.
