Linux success on UMPCs nudges Microsoft’s XP strategy

,----[ Quote ]
| To that point, Ubuntu is releasing a UMPC-only version of Ubuntu 8.04 called
| Ubuntu Netbook Remix for Intel Atom-based netbooks and UMPCs. Because many
| current users of Linux-powered UMPCs may not even know they’re using open
| source, the hope is that more obvious “branding” will result in more people
| willing to run Linux on their primary PCs.

The year of the Linux … Mini Laptop!

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is making great strides in the consumer market lately. Although there
| had been forays by different companies before, when Dell came out with their
| Linux line, it was clear that Linux for the general consumer had arrived.
| Since then, other companies have followed suit, like Lenovo, and even
| Wallmart. But there is one product that seems to have really accelerated this
| trend and has managed to open a whole new class of products. This is the
| little tiny Linux laptop named the Eee PC.

Will 'netbooks' crush laptop sales?

,----[ Quote ]
| Advanced Micro Devices has no immediate plans to release a processor designed
| for low-cost laptops, sometimes called netbooks, saying its not yet clear
| whether or not growing shipments of these devices will cannibalize sales of
| mainstream laptops.
|
| Some low-end netbook models use an existing AMD Geode processor, but the
| company hasn't announced a specific processor aimed at this product segment,
| apart from general plans to release chips based on a low-power architecture
| called Bobcat in 2010.
