Linux not essential to Eee PC success: ASUS

Author: JT Smith

So you thought Linux was the key to the Eee PC's success? Not so, according to ASUS. ââ¬ÅThe bulk of the requests and requirements we see in the marketplace are for the model with Windows rather than Linux,ââ¬Â says Henry Lee, Acerââ¬â¢s senior product manager. ââ¬ÅItââ¬â¢s a give and take between simplicity of usage for the masses versus full customisation. The Linux version is really only to use exactly what is provided, and someone in the know can easily remove whatââ¬â¢s been installed. But consumers are accustomed to the Windows environment, and the Windows version will be a stronger player eventually.ââ¬Â
