| Look what freely giving worthwhile stuff to 
| people gets you:
|     * FedoraProject.org up 18% and in the top 
|     1000 sites in some parts of the world.
|     * Debian GNU/Linux is in the top 3000 
|     over much of Europe.
|     * Ubuntu.com in the top 400 over much of 
|     the world
| Those organizations give stuff away for free 
| sincerely and without trying to manipulate 
| anyone. There are hundreds of GNU/Linux 
| distros and most are thriving, taking a 
| serious and increasing share of the desktop 
| OS market.



The end of the (Linux) desktop as we know it ?

| More and more of the Linux ecosystem (PC
| hardware vendor, phone hardware vendor,
| search engine giant and more recently a
| well known Linux distro, Ubuntu) uses
| Linux as an embedded system for the
| desktop. Some examples to illustrate this
| trend :
|     * Asus Express gate embed Linux in
|     the motherboard. You can have, in a
|     few seconds, a browser, skype, etc.
|     * Google Chrome OS : not yet released
|     but it is define as the Web OS with a
|     minimalist/zen approach (like an OS
|     based on Chrome, the browser)
|     * Mobile platform : you'll have
|     plenty to choose. ARM based :
|     Symbian, Meego, Android, etc.
|     * Last but not least, Canonical
|     announce "Unity", a minimal/Zen OS
|     that will be available to OEM but can
|     be nonetheless deployed on Ubuntu
|     Lucid and later.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
