When Asus launched the first Eee PC netbook a few years ago it came with Linux, this enabled Asus to sell the Eee PC’s as cheap as possible, although Microsoft released a version of Windows designed for netbooks, which saw many manufacturers use Windows as their netbook OS.
Now Asus has announced that it has three new Netbooks in the works that will come with Linux as the OS, the Asus Eee PC 1001 PXD, 1011 PX and 1015 PX will all come with Ubuntu 10.1.
Asus haven’t given any pricing details on these new Ubuntu powered Eee PC netbooks, although they are expected to be cheaper than the current Windows based Eee PC netbooks.
