Submission + - Linux for housewives. XP for geeks.

Talinom writes: "ZDNet has an article sure to raise the hackles of any self-respecting geek. They report that housewives buying small laptops like the Asus EE are causing Linux usage for that demographic to spike. A reporter for Tech-On states that "Retailers and contract manufacturers in Taiwan say that novice PC users there, like students and housewives, tend to buy the Linux version of the Eee PC701, while geeks go for Windows XP." So is this an previously unforeseen market for Linux or is it merely an article designed to troll Linux users?"
