LXer: Google Android - Better For Netbooks Than Windows 7

Published at LXer:

It might seem strange to put a phone operating system on a netbook, but Don Reisinger thinks it might be a better choice than Windows 7. Acer announced that it's bringing Google Android to its line of netbooks. It's planning to release an Acer netbook with Google Android installed in the third quarter of 2009. This is a major announcement: right now, Acer offers a variety of netbooks under its Aspire One line and they all have Windows running natively when shipped. For the first time, it's Google - not Linux - that will take Microsoft on in the PC space. And by the sound of things, Acer wants to see Android take off.

Read my lips,.... Windows XP, Vista & 7 wont be able to run any of the new low power Intel processors (ARM I think) which are going into many of the future Netbooks, nor will they perform at reasonable level (compared to any Linux), nor will they be able to run intensive applications (where Linux at least has a chance) on x86 based Netbooks.

End of story.
