ACER BETS BIG ON LINUX

iTnews states:

Acer sees two killer apps with Linux on computers: operation and cost. Its flavour of Linux will boot in 15 seconds compared to minutes for Windows, and the open source operating system can extend battery life from five to seven hours….

….”Microsoft’s operating system typically costs around £50 per unit,” said David Drummond, UK managing director at Acer. “On a £1,000 PC that is peanuts, but on a £200 computer it is a major issue.”
