I was reading an article today in the Consumer Reports about computers, and saw an interesting tidbit about the Eee PC:
(from Consumer Reports – magazine version – June 2008 edition, pg.23)
“Like most such machines, it uses the Linux operating system, which we recommend only for basic tasks such as web browsing and word processing.”
Interesting. I will assume that statement was either a typo, or Eee PC specific, which would make sense. Otherwise, they are really misinformed. It would be hard to believe that 9 million Ubuntu users would just be writing documents, sending email, and browsing the web. Probably most who transfer from Windows do just that, but there is so much more that can be done with Linux.
