"Leaders at the first Linuxcon Conference in Portland,
Oregon, hinted at an announcement to come this week at the Intel
Developer Forum in San Francisco that they say will reassert
Linux's initial momentum in the netbook market.
""You're going to see this week interesting new netbooks coming
out that are killer. They have the cool factor and they're priced
right," said Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux
"He believes that within a year, "no one will buy hardware or
software." Laptops will be free with a wireless service contract.
Only free software like Linux can support that model, he said.
"Microsoft's economics don't fit into that at all," he said."
