First AMD-based "netbook"?

,----[ Quote ]
| Likely to be less touch-typeable than larger Linux netbooks such as the Asus
| EEE PC 1000, the Everun Note is said to include a 60GB hard drive, as well as
| a 1.3 megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and an SD card reader.

Mini-notebook shipments up sharply

,----[ Quote ]
| Also, Apple has yet to enter the market, and the Vista-focused Microsoft
| appears to have been temporarily caught off guard by the success of systems
| too low-powered to run Vista.
|
| In addition, Linux was arguably the pioneer of the segment. Gartner did not
| release a breakdown of OS share for the mini-notebook segment, but it did
| note that the category began with "low-cost education PCs," no doubt
| referring to the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) XO. The XO began as a
| Linux-based system, and has also recently gained a Windows XP option (though
| the early builds of XO XP have garnered poor reviews)...

Intel Backstabs Microsoft by Abandoning Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| The news that Intel has decided it won't upgrade its PCs to Vista must be
| especially bitter for Microsoft because court documents show that Microsoft
| may have launched its ill-fated "junk PC" Vista scheme at the behest of
| Intel. Is this the kind of payback that Microsoft expected?

Intel won't touch Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| So that leaves two other choices, Linux and Mac. Linux is a distinct
| possibility, they already have an in-house distro that causes employees look
| nervously around the room when you talk about it. Although it is not a
| desktop variant, there is no reason that they could not roll one given two
| years.
