DailyTech - ASUS: We'll Sell 3.8 Million Eees in 2008, Some with Windows
ASUS is not shy with its ambitions for Eee PC in 2008. In a memo circulated to Eee PC team members at ASUS Headquarters, project leaders boldly declared the company plans to ship 3.8 million Eees for its next fiscal year. By contrast, the OLPC project has committed to 425,000 notebooks for all of 2007.
I think this is a reachable goal considering that the Eee PC is starting to have some sort of a "cult" following. I sure wish that the "stripped down" version of Windows that will be bundled on some of the Eee PC will also have a bundled "stripped down version" of anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall, otherwise this will mean an additional 3.8 million zombie PCs will be created in 2008.
