LXer: Android netbooks will fall to Windows stronghold, Linux indifference

Published at LXer:

Should Microsoft be scared about Google expanding its mobile OS Android to netbooks? Well, how scared can a company be when it owns 98 percent market share of something? Not very. Let's face it: The netbook "battle" between Windows and Linux is a straight-up massacre.

Actually, Linux on netbooks is far from a massacre. Face it, Microsoft got caught with its pants around its ankles by netbooks and had to beat an highly embarrassing retreat. If anything, Linux on netbooks were the final nail in the Vista coffin. Not bad, eh. Linux killed Vista.
