Canonical on MS Netbook Linux FUD

Canonical Strikes Back at Microsoft's Linux 'FUD' regarding Linux on netbooks and how (Microsoft claims) that XP is trumping them.

More of a clarification than anything, as with most OS/Phone/Editor/etc religious wars, it's all in the details as to if your "side" wins or loses. In this case the clarification was that people return netbooks of the same build quality an equal amount for windows and linux, vs tons of returns for Linux (which was what was claimed before). IE: people return crappy hardware regardless of the OS on it.
