Re: PCs are being SNUFFED by crass pre-installed operating systems
Netbooks died out because once folks got over the rush to own a "small cutesy laptop" they realised, that with crappy 1024x600 screens and pathetic single core 1.6 Atom CPUS, that they had bought a piece of crap.
Whether you run Windows or Linux on a netbook its still a crappy frustrating hardware experience.
Most folks only bought them for email and web on the go and the tablet then came along and pissed all over them. I have a Acer netbook with Ubuntu on it I've used it on holiday a few times but since then I've got a Playbook and a Nexus 4 and both nuke the netbook from a high height. The Acer just gathers dust.
I haven't heard any of my customers say "Oh I love my netbook!" Quite the opposite.
