- Netbooks are growing at a 20% clip while the rest of the industry is in a flat at best scenario.
- Netbooks are cheap and Linux along with a wide array of open-source software could drive significant opportunities.
- Google's Chrome Web browser and its wealth of web-based applications would be deployed.
- LANSA had the foresight to make LANSA deployable on the Linux operating system.
My Conclusion: This might be a great opportunity, particularly for those "between projects" independent consultants to generate a new business opportunity. One might also reclaim existing LANSA applications for the netbooks. Good Luck!
