"We are starting to see some of the major levers of
platform adoption for desktop computing be pulled more dramatically
this year than they ever have. If you think about what makes a
desktop platform successful, the fact that Windows comes
pre-installed on most computers when they're purchased on the
marketplace obviously [is a] big advantage. And you're starting to
see companies do the same with Linux. You're starting to see
companies like Asus and their Eee PC."
