"In a year that saw Linux netbooks appear, and fail to excite
consumers, thus handing Microsoft victory in the netbook operating
system space, yet another pundit has come out claiming 2009 will be
a revolutionary year for Linux.
"The article, called "2009: Year Of The Linux Revolution", from
Fast Company's Chris Dannen, says that netbooks running ARM
processors will need a lightweight and pretty version of Linux,
written by Canonical, to woo users.
"Of course, just because Canonical has done a deal with ARM to
write such a version of Linux doesn't mean it exists yet, with
existing Linux distributions doing their best to look like Windows,
and do everything that Windows can do."
