Canonical denies high return rates of Linux-based netbooks

Posted on Sunday, April 12 2009 @ 10:07:20 CEST by

Canonical, the company behind the Ubuntu project, denies "well-engineered" netbooks with Linux are seeing high return rates:
“The launch of the Asus Eee PC with Linux in late 2007 sparked a extraordinary chain of events. We saw an increase in the number of models of computers shipping with Linux, the acceleration of the PC industry’s knowledge of how to work in a non-Windows. […] The well-engineered Linux netbooks have similar return rates to XP. What makes a real difference to return rates is not whether it’s Linux or not, but the quality of the device’s hardware and the ability to fully partake in Web and media experiences,” said Chris Kenyon from Canonical.

The official for the company explained that many netbooks with Linux came without Adobe Flash player, basic media codecs and other necessary things installed on factory. Besides, many netbooks had issues with hibernation and resuming.
