[News] The Year Of The Linux is Here

Hash: SHA1

The Year Of The Linuxâ Everything Else

,----[ Quote ]
| Now imagine what it would do for Linux if 
| Appleâs products worked perfectly with it. 
| Thatâs never going to happen of course (not 
| if Apple can help it, anyway), but another 
| important shift is coming. Linux is becoming 
| the king of the appliance world and thatâs a 
| really big thing. Android and MeeGo are 
| changing the scene. The growth in Androidâs 
| market share has been impressive and is only 
| set to rise. Nokia just announced that they 
| will drop Symbian for MeeGo on their high-end 
| smartphones phones. I mean does anyone even 
| realise how amazing it is that one can go to 
| any retailer and buy a Linux powered phone? 
| What these products have done, is turn Linux 
| into a truly wonderful, sexy, easy-to-use 
| appliance and itâs only going to get better 
| from here.
| Itâs not just phones. Consumers can also buy 
| (or will be able to soon) Linux based:
|     * ARM netbooks
|     * cars
|     * eBook readers
|     * GPS units
|     * media hubs
|     * mini computers
|     * music players
|     * network attached storage
|     * projectors
|     * media centers
|     * personal internet viewers
|     * routers
|     * tablets
|     * televisions
|     * set-top boxes
|     * âtraditionalâ phones
|     * watches



Editor's Note: When Will it Really Be the Year of Linux?

| It already is. It already has been. It will continue for the forseeable
| future.
| My scorn for lazy tech reporters who have made an industry out of "This is
| the year of Linux!/ No it isn't, stupid hippies!" is no secret. In fact I
| could make my own little industry out of scorning lazy, useless, content-free
| tech reporting, except that complaining all the time is dull and annoying. It
| gripes me greatly that this grand bully pulpit of online publishing, where a
| single person has the potential to reach the entire world, is wasted on 90%
| dreck. But then Theodore Sturgeon said that ninety percent of everything is
| crap, so I guess that's just the way humanity operates.

| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
