This is an incontrovertible fact!
The principle:
You will never save more by acquiring less than you can afford.

The expenditure of all energy is a function of time.
Energy is time. Once you've spent it, you don't get it back
You can steal from a person, but not from time.
In every situation we must ask ourselves, "are we committed to succeed, or committed to fail.

The future of Linux netbopoks and the price of Windows

Posted 07-03-2009 at 04:18 AM by erlik

Last week I made a summary of the current state of the Linux netbook market. Today I will show you that Linux netbooks are at a crossroad. They can reach a bright future and a significant market presence through 3 different paths: the smartbook path, the cheap path and the power path.
