Barence writes: PC World has pulled the Toshiba Folio 100 tablet from its shelves because of high return rates, echoing the early retail experience of Linux on netbooks. The Toshiba tablet runs on Android, but it seems customers are unhappy with the user experience offered by Google's OS. PC Pro editor Tim Danton thinks it's a case of history repeating. "Remember when Linux-based netbooks first went on sale? Soon afterwards, reports appeared saying customers were returning them because they didn’t work as expected – that is, they didn’t run Windows software," Danton writes. "I suspect we’re seeing exactly the same pattern here: people are buying the Folio expecting the same smooth user experience as with an iPad, with the same link to a richly populated software store. It's months away from offering that experience."
