Predicted to take close to a third of netbook sales this year, as opposed to
a quarter last year

still showing growth.

Here's an interview
with ABI where they clarify that they're NOT counting machines sold with a
Windows preinstallation that is wiped and replaced with Linux ("probably
only a couple of percentage points") or dual-boot things like Android.
They're specifically talking about machines which ship with Linux
preinstalled as the primary OS. Turns out this is mainly Ubuntu.
Oh, and they expect ARM to account of 4% of netbook sales this year.
