Back in 2007 when Asus came out with the first Eee PC it shipped with the Xandros distribution, but after Microsoft turned up with it's hacked down version of Windows, most netbook manufacturers dropped Linux in favour of Windows. Now Asus has said it will load Ubuntu on three of its Eee PC netbooks from 1 July 2011. Lets hope this will kickstart other netbook makers into preloading Linux onto their machines.
