LXer: Android For Desktops? I Doubt It

Published at LXer:

For years, my friend Stephen J. Vaughan-Nichols has been trying to turn Linux into something it is not: A successful and popular desktop operating system. Everyone needs a reason to get up in the morning and I am glad he has found such a long lasting (and profitable) one. He is a smart guy, but I am still waiting for the Linux that will change my life. His latest foray into "Linux is the next big thing" is a discussion of Google's Android operating system running on future netbooks. Stephen then over-generalizes to call Android "Google's...own contender for desktop operating system king." And in a paragraph that starts by talking about Windows 7, no less. This is simply wrong.</p>
[Note the disclaimer at the bottom: "David Coursey's closest brush with a desktop "ix" operating system is his Macintosh." - Sander]
