What will come after Linux? 

,----[ Quote ]
| I do think that the time of proprietary 
| operating systems are coming to a close. There 
| are too many free and open source solutions 
| available and the most important part of any 
| computing system, the data, can be easily 
| transferred between them. So while windows 
| keeps trying to entice the public with eye 
| candy, MacOS keeps its hardware to itself and 
| AmigaOS keeps with the unfortunate business 
| decisions, the average Joe Blo and SOHOs will 
| look around for alternatives. Enterprise 
| businesses are like large religions. Stubborn 
| and take several thousand years to make a 
| minor change.
| So the day comes and Linux has toppled windows 
| off of its pedestal. Linus Torvalds is as 
| revered as Bill Gates was and Richard Stallman 
| is throwing chairs when he hears about the 
| new, up and coming operating system. Linux is 
| pre-installed on just about every single 
| computer sold and the whole computing industry 
| is geared around providing service and support 
| for Linux. I just wonder if we, as Linux 
| supporters, will be treating the advocates of 
| the new prodigy operating system the same way 
| windows supporters treat us today. 



Former Apple exec says iPad too big, "smarted out"

| The iPad is too big and lacks communication

| company's iconic-but-flawed Newton more
| than a decade ago.
