Comment Re:OS X on MacBook Air (Score 1) 317

i suspect that microsoft inadvertently helped define the netbook: manufacturers wanted to use XP, microsoft wanted XP to die already (still does.) Microsoft parried with the XP-ULPC license, which I believe was only to be installed on machines with no more than 1GB ram and 160GB hard drive. So there's part of the standard. Throw in a 9 or 10 inch display and delete the optical drive and we have arrived in netbook land.
