"Mr. Lim saw Linux pulling even with Windows on
netbooks by next year while ABI Research saw it happening by 2013.
Both saw netbooks powered by ARM processors as the main reason that
Linux would rebound.
"Most of the comments I received ranged from skeptical to
incredulous. Even those who support and advocate for Linux on the
desktop largely believed that Microsoft would retain market
dominance. Here we are six months later and the promised ARM
powered netbooks have not arrived in any quantity as of yet. The
Intel Atom processor is currently used in 90% of netbooks according
to ABI Research while ARM processors only account for 4% of the
market at present."
