| You should also be able to order this under both Xandros Linux and Windows
| XP, according the information we have available. This is no surprise since
| that’s what Asus uses on Linux versions of their EeePC. The Windows XP
| version will come with StarOffice, Eee Memo, Eee Cinema, Eee Cam, SoftStyles,
| Skype and a trial Norton Internet Security Suite.
Microsoft can't be too happy about ODF coming with Windwows.

| We have heard that return rates have been higher for Linux-based netbooks.
| Can you share information on sales of the Linux Eee PCs versus Windows XP
| versions? What about return rates overall for Eee PC netbooks?
| I think the return rate for the Eee PCs are low but I believe the Linux and
| Windows have similar return rates. We really separate the products into
| different user groups. A lot of users like the Windows XP, but in Europe a
| lot of people want the Linux option. Actually in Linux we support the Easy
| Mode and in Q4 of this year we are going to start selling Windows XP with an
| Easy Mode.
