They think they're not aiming at me, but I'm still on their radar. It's absurd that I should have to buy an expensive 'professional' model to achieve something the cheap model would be quite capable of doing were it not given an artificial restriction - assuming this is even offered as an option. Buying laptops with XP Pro rather than Home got difficult enough and I don't want to end up having to jump through fifteen hoops to achieve something that should be perfectly normal.
Linux returns of netbooks have been far higher than Windows, from what I've seen. People have got used to running lots at once and, if they're suddenly told they can't, I'd expect Windows returns to suddenly climb as well.
(Assuming of course that the netbook market doesn't go the way of the PDA market. I _love_ having proper portable computers again - I was an old-style Psion user and having that sort of thing at my fingertips is just brilliant. Kinda worried that we might have an overhyped market that promptly dies because it can't sustain the hype though...)
