Submission + - ASUS abandons Linux (computerworld.com.au)

hairyfeet writes: "Computerworld has posted from a ASUS product showcase in Sydney that when asked why there were no Linux notebooks or Netbooks on display that according to ASUS representatives Linux is being phased out by the company across the board in favor of Windows. Considering that Ubuntu has confirmed that Linux has a 400% return rate when compared to Windows, and that Windows now own 90%+ of the Netbook market with an aging Windows XP, does this mean that the future of Linux in the Netbook/Notebook market is bleak?"
