Looks like netbook sales will surge more given this move by Verizon (http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10206584-1.html) to sell netbooks. AT&T is already selling Acer and Dell netbooks...
As mentioned before, more than 30% of netbook sales are on Linux (they are $50-75 less costly than Windows XP --- Vista doesnt run)
