Good, but I know it's not dead. It's just Micro$oft's wish or wet dream. Linux cannot die. It can only die if we let it.

It seems to me that Linux is "most alive" on the communal and enterprise desktop in Europe, South America, Russia and China. I rarely see news of something like that happening in other parts of the world. Is that because something like that just don't happens in, for example, the USA, or does it just not appear in the blogs?
