LXer: Why Linux has come of age

Published at LXer:

Up until recently, the big-name PC brands have been decidedly reluctant to go with a Linux operating system on their mainstream desktops and notebooks. Dell with its option of Ubuntu on selected models is about as good as it got. But with netbooks beginning to arrive in Australia and the US by the truckload, the brands have had to look at their costs and even Microsoft’s decision to keep Windows XP Home Edition around specifically for these devices hasn’t done the trick. Enter various shades of Linux with Asus choosing Xandros, Acer getting cosy with Linpus and Dell sticking to its tried and trusted Ubuntu distro. The low cost, high stability and ease of use appears to have now reached the right levels for major brands to take a risk.
