Default Re: European Union at it again

you really are a blind linux user

there was 6 version of vista, same OS released in 99.999% sililar feature set.

and you are comparing that you ammount of linux distros?

that is only amount of different versions (distros) of linux, not counting how many different versions there are for each distro.

btw, people really love that linux on netbook, that is why returns are 4 times higher.

You mention the return rates being high. Has that been the case with the Wind as well?
We have done a lot of studies on the return rates and havenít really talked about it much until now. Our internal research has shown that the return of netbooks is higher than regular notebooks, but the main cause of that is Linux. People would love to pay $299 or $399 but they donít know what they get until they open the box. They start playing around with Linux and start realizing that itís not what they are used to. They donít want to spend time to learn it so they bring it back to the store. The return rate is at least four times higher for Linux netbooks than Windows XP netbooks.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
