Linux is now trying to connect with consumers.
As the connections become stronger, there will be more
traction for Linux with retailers. I am already seeing
some gadget stores carrying Linux developer kits!!
But seriously, with the increased traction, a straight
choice will emerge between products containing Linux
and those without. I guessing product managers will
start specifying more Linux gadgets and software to switch
to stocking more of it. Linux technology has a lot
fewer problems - so few that product managers to accountants
rarely notice what is bringing in the bacon for their business!!!
