Article title: Acer is pushing Linux and Microsoft farther away. Linux is a technology channel of the IT lab in China. Including desktop applications, Linux system management, kernel research, embedded systems and open source, and some other basic categories as the Acer of the world's second largest notebook seller, the purpose of doing so is not to know that the market. For UMPC, the above features are indeed more attractive to consumers, because users who need such laptops do not care about the configuration, they only require simple text processing and surfing the Internet. Light, endurance is the focus.
When Microsoft and Yahoo wanted to be more intimate, Acer wanted to stay away from Microsoft. In an interview on Wednesday, Acer's vice president of marketing, Gianpiero Morbello, said they are discussing a big plan to develop the Linux market, not just on the popular UMPC, it will be expanded to other mainstream laptops in the company's sound field.
The reason is, of course, because Linux is a cheap and open source code compared with Microsoft's operating system. Morbello also said that because of Microsoft's strength, it may be difficult, but they will do their best to develop this market. It can be seen that Acer is still very determined.
On Tuesday, Acer officially announced its entry into the UMPC market's Aspiro One. In the operating system, Windows XP and Linux are available. For UMPC, the price will be the most attractive part, not the configuration. In addition, Acer also pointed out that in Linux, the system will start faster and the battery will be more durable.
Edit opinion: as the Acer of the world's second-largest notebook seller, the goal of doing so is to look at the market. For UMPC, the above features are indeed more attractive to consumers, because users who need such laptops do not care about the configuration, they only require simple text processing and surfing the Internet. Light, endurance is the focus. However, Xiaobian believes that for domestic consumers, the UMPC market is not very ideal and the price is still relatively expensive. Therefore, it is estimated that Acer is not making such a difficult decision for us at least.
