I mentioned not too long ago that the Apricot brand was coming back plastered on a new netbook. Apricot now says that it will not be selling Linux versions of the netbook. The reason Linux is being shunned is that Apricot feels the OS is too complex.

Instead of Linux versions, Apricot will focus on Windows versions of its netbooks. The Linux version of the netbook was originally slated to cost £279.

The Windows version that will be available will retail for £328, a significant price difference. The XP version of the netbook £299 to compete with other netbooks.
