This Wall Street Journal article says it all, almost all:
Big week for Smartbook vendors... running Android, Ubuntu, etc.. at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show
Lower price, higher profit margin for vendors...

YES Linux, YES Lotus Symphony, ...
Why almost all?
What they missed is that about 32% of Netbooks are also shipping with Linux...

Good discussion in Technewsworld on adoption of Linux based Netbooks (32%), the predicted surge in 2010 with ARM based Netbooks which will run ONLY Linux...
'Death of the Desktop'
However, "experience with netbooks will kill off the desktop within a few years," Pogson predicted. "It makes little sense unless you need all those drives, noise, heat, space and burning money. Those who really need power will use a thin client connected to a server cluster."
Looking ahead, "expect GNU/Linux to do just as well on notebooks as it did on netbooks," he added. "2009 was the year of GNU/Linux on the desktop as far as I am concerned. 2010 could well mark the death of the desktop and overweight notebooks."

Check out this article in Computerworld regarding recent Microsoft SEC filing:
1. Canonical (Ubuntu) and RedHat added to the Windows Client competitor list.
2. "Netbooks opened Microsoft to the possibility that some other OS could get its grip on the desktop, however briefly," said Rob Helm, director of research for Directions on Microsoft. "Now it's alert to that possibility going forward."
3. Concerned about OEM partners, HP and Intel supporting Linux on their PCs..
