I understand your impressions but your claim that the Moblin spin isn't
targeted at netbooks is just plain wrong. There is just no way around that.

People are using custom desktops in netbooks all the time and yes, those
custom desktops are gaining market share. I gave you a desktop market
study as a reference already, Look at what Dell is recently shipping for
instance. Just hand waving wildly doesn't cut it.
