+ - Microsoft Boasts 96% Netbook Penetration

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Citing figures from market research firm NPD, Microsoft says Windows' share of the U.S. netbook market has ballooned from less than 10% in the first half of 2008 to 96% as of February. "The growth of Windows on netbook PCs over the last year has been phenomenal," wrote Brandon LeBlanc, Microsoft's in-house Windows blogger, in a post Friday.

Information Week author Paul McDougall notes Microsoft's 8% decline in Windows sales is due to netbooks sporting Linux. How does Redmond make an 80% gain in netbook market share without the sales numbers reflecting that gain?"
