| Falling hardware prices
| The more the prices of hardware falls, the 
| lower is MS able to charge the OEMs a per 
| unit installation license for Windows. Given 
| the fact that hardware prices have fallen 
| drastically in recent years and are set to do 
| so in the foreseeable future, Ballmer may not 
| be sleeping well at all.
| Desktop Linux
| No I'm not going to say the year of Linux is 
| here and now. But whatever the case, the 
| relatively increasing popularity of Linux 
| among the general masses-spearheaded by 
| Ubuntu-is set to cause some discomfiture to 
| MS execs.
| Android
| On the smartphone platform, Android is set to 
| make life very difficult given the fact that 
| the almighty Google itself is now directly

10 important Linux developments everyone should know about

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux technology, development model, and
| community have all been game-changing
| influences on the IT industry, and all we can
| really do is stand back and look at it all,
| happy to have been along for the ride for
| developerWorks' first 10 years. The Linux zone
| team has put together this greatly abbreviated
| collection of things that stand out in our
| minds as having rocked the world of Linux in a
| significant way.
| Much too much has happened with Linux in the
| last 10 years to do anything like a complete
| job of listing the important events and
| technological advances surrounding this
| operating system. But nevertheless, in
| celebration of our 10th birthday, the Linux
| zone team looks back and presents to you some
| major milestones, why they matter, and what we
| wrote about them. Please to enjoy.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
