LXer: Shuttleworth: Windows 7 Is an Opportunity for Linux

Published at LXer:

Microsoft might be betting big on Windows 7, the next version of its flagship operating system, but to Ubuntu Linux founder Mark Shuttleworth, the upcoming release is really an opportunity for Linux to shine. "The next billion PC users won't be as interested in compatibility with Microsoft Office as they are in connecting to Twitter and staying connected to their social network through the Web," Shuttleworth said. "The business models are changing and it means that the growth of the PC industry is going to be strongly attracted to alternative to Windows -- that's my belief."
