Sony Vaio brand

Sony is looking to : "Significantly, Vaio operating systems will no longer be limited to Microsoft's Windows XP. Vaio Pocket, Sony's new portable audio player will use Sony's proprietary operating system. The same is apparently true of the video version of a prototype pocket device Sony demonstrated here...Kiumra said Sony has no plans to switch its Vaio platform from Windows XP to Linux any time soon. But he added that Linux is a candidate for a number of small but powerful Vaio-based devices."
