I like this quote:

 "Of course there is a significant benefit for users who do not select
   Ubuntu or another Linux distribution.  The price of XP crashed last
   year due to competition - so even if you bought a netbook last year
   with XP - feel free to smile when you see an Ubuntu PC. It's amazing
   what an open market can achieve."
