According to Microsoft, 96% of netbooks are running Windows. Now the reason people are going for Windows when Linux is around and in many cases, is almost as easy to use, according to Microsoft is that:
- It’s easier to set up, easier to use, and easier to maintain
- It just works with people’s stuff
- There’s more choice
I don’t know, really. I like Linux myself, and I’d spend hours just modifying things in the various distros I installed in my Eee, and I enjoyed it. Eventually I switched to Windows because I needed to do less tweaking/hacking and do more working. I can understand why people like Windows, but I’m also disappointed why Linux has been lagging in the netbook race.
