You can be sure when Microsoft blitzes the world with a massive advertising campaign for Windows 7, they’ll be spending many millions promoting Windows 7 on netbooks. And given that marketing muscle, Linux most likely won’t stand a chance, regardless of which operating system is superior. (More reasons Windows 7 will kill Linux)


Windows 7 features a much slicker interface than Windows XP, is easier to use, and Microsoft will spend many millions of dollars to push its use on netbooks. So when it’s released, expect Linux use on netbooks to drop. (One more reason Linux must fear Windows 7)

Both quotes mentioned above obviously biased to Windows 7. It sounds like Windows 7 is really confident to make bold claim that they're able to monopolize the worldwide netbook share. Are they able to make it happen or it is just a marketing strategy only. Microsoft exaggerating their strength. As we know Linux will continue to be a Linux... and no matter how much money Microsoft spends or what Windows 7 does. If we really drill down the term of Linux, it could be Suse, Ubuntu, Fedora, Redhat and etc community. Each Linux community progressively develop their own best product. Linux will not going away unless, one day the worldwide Linux community decides to disperse and stop developing and growing... and also shutdown all the Linux forum. Hmmmm... another mission impossible (MI-IV) for Microsoft. The possibility for them to stop is very... very... small and probably negligible.
