I agree. Linux is a pain in the ass. I just read where 80% of Netbooks that are “loaded” with Linux are being returned. I suspect a good portion of the others are sporting an illegal copy of XP in a dual boot setup. People get the Linux Netbook as it is cheaper, then figure out a way to put Windows on for cheap or free…A lot of folks have plenty of keys to use from swapping computers etc.
