I do not know about this Bill, however he starts his article with «A
well-known Linux analyst
has published a blog saying that Linux is failing in the
once-promising netbook market.»,
which is an EPIC FAIL by itself.

Let's examine this first sentence,
1. The information does not come from the analyst's blog (it's a
result of interview/contact).
2. The analyst did not say that 'Linux is failing in the
once-promising netbook market' (the analyst make a prediction)
3. That 'analyst' is not a 'Linux' analyst. In
we see that the said analyst has very low grasp of what open-source
and Linux is about.
4. The analyst is actually only now 'well-known' in the open-source
community because of the blorge.com articles that expose him as an
uninformed person.
