The situation in Greece has pretty much changed the market in that
aspect. From a very quick calculation it seems that around 1/3 of the
laptops in a popular shop in Greece [0] are now sold either with some
distribution of Linux or FreeDOS preinstalled. I don't know how much
they actually sell, but before 2010 it was almost impossible to find
such a laptop.
