Happy New Year & Browser and OS stats for 2010

On behalf of myself and Id like to wish everyone a very happy new year. I'm happy to say that 2010 was another great year for LQ and that 2011 promises to be another year filled with growth and exciting developments (including a fairly major code update). As has become tradition, I've posted Browser and OS stats for the entire year on my blog:

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve, please visit this thread and let us know.

It's patently obvious that Linux (or something very similar to it) is the way of the future for end-user computer operating systems. The days of the two mainstream alternatives are numbered, and I suspect they know it. It may take some years for the general public to realise, but they'll cotton on eventually.

Thanks everybody for being involved, and making the next step possible.

Linux will be the default desktop os. It is inevitable. As some wiser people had said long ago, you can fool some people some of the time but you cannot fool all the people all of the time. In the meantime, it's up to us to educate our friends on the truth of the matter which is that just because something is free does not automatically mean that it is inferior.

So, here's wishing each and everyone of you a very happy New Year and looking forward to another 365 days of progress and development.

Thank you for the very warm welcome and a happy New Year to you all.
I Live in Highgate, St. Mary on the north coast of Jamaica. This area has a large farming community who although relatively poor wish to enjoy the information revolution.
I am new to Linux and Ubuntu but believe they offer a great way for rural Jamaica to get into the information age at a reasonable cost.
Still reading how to use BASH so have no questions or suggestions at this time.
Worked with IBM from 1964 to 1982 as a hardware engineer, very rusty on command line atm, hopefully it all falls into place.
Thank you all for putting together an awesome set of information.

Happy New Year to all. I have found linuxquestions. org to be very informative in 2010. I read the posts all the time, but do not always login. I am still a newbie to Linux, but not because I am new to using Linux - been using it for over 10 years now - only that I stick to desktop/ready distros mostly. It looks to be a great year for KDE 4 this 2011 and all other DEs and WMs too for that matter. I think GNU/Linux with GPL/GNU programs and free software is the best way to go in more ways than one. Hope everyone enjoys it in the year. to come. Happy New Year to you all and; thanks!!!!!!!
