Microsoft and Asus Team Up On the Road to Windows Domination

Microsoft and Asus are teaming up to promote the Windows operating system and further its takeover in the netbook market. These two companies have launched a website and are currently promoting their “it’s better with Windows” campaign. The promotion highlights the claim that Windows is a more reliable and familiar operating system (than Linux) and that it does not have major compatibility issues.

Windows is gaining a larger presence as the operating system for netbooks. According to market research firm, NPD Group, 10% of netbooks that were shipped in early 2008 shipped with Windows pre-installed, but by February 2009, 96% of netbooks shipped with Windows as the operating system.
