Why MIDs have yet to soar

One of the topics I've seen of late is that, according to general sales numbers, Netbooks soared and were a huge success, while Mobile Internet Devices (MID) more or less did an epic faceplant and a fail of monumental proportions.

Yet, I don't think we are ready to count out MIDs just yet. In fact, I think they haven't even really begun and we're very much due for a big, big boom in MID sales in the near future. Here's several reasons why:

1. MIDs typically use Linux. Not all mind you, but I'd say that for ever 7 MIDs that use Linux, only one, maybe two use an alternative operating system like Windows. (wow, I actually called Windows an "alternative" operating system. That's a total flip in perspective. Heh)

2. People don't yet understand MIDs.
