Dell refutes Microsoft's Netbook return claims

At the open source world conference, Dell's Senior Product Manager, Todd Finch refuted microsoft's claim that return rates for Linux netbooks have been much higher than windows netbooks.


Originally, I thought that the return rate made sense, because people buying cheap netbooks would find the task of learning Linux/Ubuntu UI a huge task. But it appears that the people buying these netbooks are computer savvy, if Dells experience is to be believed.

However, to get a fuller picture, we also need the story across all hardware vendors that are selling netbooks.
