People can share Thunderbird e-mail database between Linux/Windows. If we can use common filesystem for both Notebook and smartphone as well, it will make Smartphone/Notebook model great success. The idea here is "The community/Government should keep pushing for Standardized Filesystem, Application File format, Database format, instead of getting influenced by Big Brother.

This is a good idea.. Besides windows, I'd like to see sybiam to be used as a netbook OS. Many people are using Nokia phones and familiar with its usage. There are also many applications and games on Sybiam platform now. Since the technology has been so advanced, even a low cost CPU is sufficient to general usage. I feel the CPU market will become more "M"-shaped in the future. High-performance CPUs for servers, and low-performance CPUs for average customers. Netbook concept is a good chance to break the wintel monopoly. Intel/AMD won't be happy about that.

AsusTek has been experimenting with use of ARM/Linux in its Eee PCs for a number of features that can be implmented with needing the power hungry Windows/x86 environment. They showed some ideas at CES. See http://www.eetimes.com/showArticle.jhtml;?articleID=212700977 FWIW, I am told when Asus first use Linux on its EeePC, Microsoft finally gave them a price cut they had requested for XP on netbooks.
