Backwards from the original.

Silly English language
Sorry but just have to ask, to which post are you referring? I only ask because I couldn't see an example of that.

Maybe it's because I'm not a cellphone kinda guy, but I'm having a hard time understanding why tablet makers are moving towards android rather than some form of Linux. Surely the drivers couldn't be that hard to write for touch screens. It's almost as if they see the tablet market as being Cell Phone users who want a bit more power (and/or a bigger screen), rather than PC users looking for more portability.

edit: And before somebody says that they tried Linux on netbooks and it failed... That was probably based more upon the lackluster performance of the early netbooks than any failure of Linux.

I suspect there'll be a tablet of some form gracing the Wilson homestead in 2011, but it'll probably be closer to the end of the year once the dust settles.
