PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It'll be a full x86 device - Lenovo calls a 'joint effort' with Intel and Microsoft - that clocks in at 1.3 pounds with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display. It's billed to have 10-hour battery life, which would be impressive for a device only 9.8mm thick. The standard model is Wi-Fi-only, but there will also be carrier versions including one with AT&T's LTE connectivity." If you see a 1366x768 resolution on a 10.1" display, they blew it.

If people were opposed, then there would be a reflection in the sales. Obviously the market is in demand of a device that is an end to end experience. The coupling of hardware and software is just a means to that end.

Market is controlled by aware people (if there are a lot of them), i.e. if they boycott something for example for some reason. For most it's hard to be aware of the technicalities, that's why sales don't reflect anything about what's proper or what should be.

That's a paragraph long way of rationalizing people just not caring. Its not important to them. They don't even know what Linux is.
