+ - Asus to Phase out sub-10in, Linux Eee-PCs->

Submitted by

jeevesbond writes "The Register reports Asus company chief Jerry Shen has revealed his company will be phasing out all sub-10in Eee-PCs. According to Shen, the 'standard' netbook next year will be a 10in model with a hard drive and running XP. GNU/Linux, it appears, will fall by the wayside on Asus' offerings.

Shen also said XP is outselling GNU/Linux on netbooks by a ratio of 7:3. This is somewhat contrary to news from the UK, earlier in the year, that GNU/Linux units were out of stock while XP machines sat unsold. Are Brits more open-minded than the rest of the world when it comes to choosing an OS?"
