Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Netbook innovator Asustek has announced that it will ship three models of its Eee PC with Ubuntu 10.10 preinstalled. Canonical announced Asus' decision to load the Eee PC 1001PXD, 1011PX and 1015PX with Ubuntu 10.10 from 1 June as one that will "make it one of the most user-friendly PCs on the market". Asus said that "many more" Eee PC models running Ubuntu will be available later this year. Linux fans will hope that in the three years since Asus started shipping Linux on its Eee PCs users will have realised that Linux is far more lightweight and suited to netbook computing than Windows.

I've never used a Netbook but assuming it can run Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite there's your answer. If not then, well, Netbooks aren't very productive either are they?

One does need to run the explicit programs Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite in order to produce the output that those prgrams allow you to prodcue.

There is no output of those programs that one might reasonably want to attempt to produce on a netbook that cannot be produced on a Linux netbook.

Try again.
