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.

True Geeks don't use windows. Semi-geeks will do a dual boot (windows only to play games) or install windows in a virtual machine.

That's because True Geeks would die of boredom in their basements using Windows or OSX.

With linux at least they get to tinker with half-assed/broken stuff in the os for days in order to kinda-sorta-almost get it to work like it should ;)
