Why you should use linux as your Netbook OS ? Part 1

Many people claim that Microsoft has been dominating the Netbook market with Windows Xp , but in fact linux is the best choice for netbook users . So why linux must be your netbook os ?

1_ Netbook hardware is the perfect match for linux :   

People say that you can't play games on linux , but they ignored the fact that you can't play games on a Netbook , surfing is the major role of this technology ,and this is what make it distinguishing .

2_All about the interface :

As you grasp , all netbooks offer a small screen , so you need a desktop interface that fits this real estate . The Eeebunutu offer Remix desktop interface that is perfectly suited for your desktop size .

3_Netbooks require a secure OS :

windows XP users suffer from real threats like virus , spywares and Trojans , and if we project that to your netbook you will need a powerful antivirus , but your netbook performance can't support an antivirus like Norton . In the other side , none can deny the fact that Linux is a secure OS that offers the maximum security .

4_ Your netbook can be more than a slow laptop :

when you use Eeebuntu you feel like you have the performance of a full laptop , you can even install a full blown LAMP server on your netbook if you like .

5_ linux keep your cost down :

the cheap price of netbooks make it more and more popular , you can find a netbook under 300$ , but 200$ will be reached when computer companies release it with a Linux OS . don't forget that Linux is an open source , that mean that you can install it for free .
