A Tale Of Two Netbooks

Interesting to compare the experiences of two different companies, both
offering buyers a choice of Linux or Windows XP on their respective
mininotebooks/netbooks: Asus and MSI. One basically created the netbook
market, did its own special tweaks to improve the user experience, and is
expecting to ship 5 million of the machines this year, of which at least 2
million will be running Linux.

The other is shipping an off-the-shelf Linux distro from a company in bed
with Microsoft, and is reporting higher return rates for its Linux
offering.
