"Yes, but the first netbooks weren't loaded with windows bloat,"

a big reason for the decline in netbooks was the fact the early ones did not run windows and the great unwashed were returning them to shops because they could not use them. They had to up the specs and the price (microsoft tax) to shoehorn in windows...

Ironically, the final death blow was the ipad and later android tablets that also did not run windows...
