OK, but the hypotheses »Linux on netbooks went down in flames« and »Linux was only put onto netbooks to scare Microsoft« are mutually exclusive.
If the netbook manufacturers didn't even try to seriously sell netbooks with a reasonable Linux, the »failure« of Linux on netbooks doesn't prove that Linux can't fly on desktop machines, because it still might if it was done properly.
