Linux only. Then, there are all those motherboards with Linux on them. Over ten
million to be sold per year!

That's interesting, and it's encouraging.  However.  I'd buy a laptop
because I cannot integrate a system as nicely as a well done
laptop is made.  However, for a desktop, I buy generic parts (and
probably use an old-looking box).  Thus I get utility that does not
look valuable, a wise provision these days.  And by using generic
parts (and boards and power supply) I don't get tripped up by a
manufacturer's clever vendor lockin provisions.  So generalizing
from my own experience, I wonder if Asus can do as well in the
desktop market as in the laptop market?

Anyhow, more Linux from Asus can only be good.  I'm about to
make up a new machine, and I'll be looking for an Asus
