As the recession continues to tighten our pocketbooks, more and more folks are buying Netbooks in lieu of the traditional laptops or desktop computer systems. But what is even more interesting is that Microsoft contends that these pint sized laptops use Windows. But is that really true? Well according to some who work in the computer field, Linux is still a viable alternative. It seems that at one recent European conference, Linux prevailed. 

Systems running Ubuntu with a screen like the one below, seemed to be the primary OS being used by conference attendees. 



So what are the real numbers on who is using Windows and who is using Linux on the Netbooks? Who knows for sure. But I’m using Linux on my mini. What about you? Windows or Linux on your netbook?

Let us know.

Comments welcome.
