statistics on Linux netbook returns.
"Last year, for example, the director of U.S. sales for MSI told Laptop Magazine that customers return Linux netbooks four times as often as Windows netbooks.
As Computerworld.com contributor Eric Lai pointed out, however, such claims can be misleading.
According to Lai, MSI's numbers weren't based on the company's actual netbook return rates. In fact, at the time, MSI wasn't even shipping a Linux-powered netbook model.
So, where did MSI get its information? From third-party market research.
