LXer: 2009: Year Of The Linux Revolution

Published at LXer:

As our software becomes more Web-centric and our devices cheaper, Linux is becoming the operating system on everyone’s lips for 2009. Sorry, Microsoft. If this week’s news is any indication, you’ve been served.

So Macs and PCs as we know them won’t be going anywhere, but as netbooks and smartphones proliferate, the total marketshare of Internet-capable devices enjoyed by Apple and Microsoft will be greatly diluted. That means that their respective operating systems will have to learn to play nicely with Linux -- a tall order for the industry’s two most stubborn companies. Unfortunately, they’ll have no choice; that’s the nature of a revolution.
Unfortunately ? ... I'd say 'fortunately', in fact, I'd be most happy if Apple and M$ stocks dropped through the floor and they went bankrupt overnight ... that would be most fortunate.
