SJVN has replied to more FUD on the web about GNU/Linux never being a major desktop OS.
SJVN:“So why am I not ready to give up on desktop Linux since neither Vista’s failure nor Linux on netbook’s success brought Linux to millions of new desktops? Because, I don’t see a failure. I see a sea-change in desktop computing. Strohmeyer sees it too, but again we look at its importance in different ways.”
Wake up people! GNU/Linux has arrived:
- many millions of desktop users around the globe, particularly EU, BR, RU, IN, and CN
- OEMs shipping GNU/Linux widely
- you can buy PCs with GNU/Linux new or used
- M$ is spreading FUD about GNU/Linux again
Even in the USA, the most rabid fancountry for M$ has many mirrors for GNU/Linux distros. Last time I checked, those mirrors are mostly serving needs in the USA.
2009 was the year of the GNU/Linux desktop. These folks cannot revise history. M$ cut prices amounting to a $billion because the netbooks were on fire with GNU/Linux. M$ has not enough $billions to pay the world not to run GNU/Linux. It is happening. No one says MacOS is not a major desktop OS and GNU/Linux is on more PCs than MacOS.
