One of my worse predictions for 2009 was the more widespread adoption of Ubuntu and other mainstream disties by netbook vendors. Seems I was well wrong and somehow they now mainly only come with Windows. Like all those full blown laptops Dell so briefly offered with a non Microsoft OS. I wanted to buy one recently and could not find a UK notebook without Windows on the Dell site.
Hopefully the BBC will follow up their brief business coverage with a bit more of an in depth technical review once 9.10 is released on Thurs. Perhaps a bit more open minded than the sidebar from their tech correspondent.
I’ll probably upgrade next week, ideally though I’d like a hardware upgrade too. Fat chance of getting that past the budget committee.
Linux does seem to be picking up on the codematic web stats which I always find odd as the site is pretty much dedicated to Excel on Windows.
When will you try 9.10?
