I’ll be honest – the netbook craze has certainly caught me off-guard. When you have non-tech friends coming up to you and talking about a gadget, you know something special has happened. I have lots of friends who have told me that they intend on buying a netbook, with cost + size being the major reasons why. Linux distros don’t interest them – they want something familiar and that means Windows XP Home Edition.
As you prep for Christmas, is a Netbook in your plans? Are you hearing the same things from your friends?
