Oracle Unbreakable Linux vs. Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| Companies may sit on the sidelines a bit further before jumping on the Oracle 
| bandwagon -- until we learn, without the Oracle hype, how good the company's 
| customer support truly is.  As customer attitude changes from commercial 
| support to open source, Red Hat and Oracle preparing for a fierce battle is 
| understandable.

Red Hat growth: A tale of 2,000 applications

| Red Hat's Linux business continues to boom, even when we don't give it the 
| credit that it deserves. What is the underlying reason for that growth?

Study: Developers Favor Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| "Regardless of what kind of developer you are, you're still trying to
| make a living, and target the operating system that?s controlling the
| market."
| However, in the most recent survey, the developers' forecast of their
| target platform has changed. For the first time, these developers said
| that in the next 12 to 18 months they expect to be developing more Linux
| apps than Windows apps. 


Is the World Ready for a Web-Based Desktop? 

,----[ Quote ]
| There will be popular online desktops. But I expect it to be the next 
| generation of Google Apps, not AjaxOffice. When all is said and done, no 
| matter how important these thin desktops become, I still expect most people 
| to get most of their work done on fat-client desktops with fat office 
| applications. What won't surprise me though is that those desktops are 
| increasingly going to be based on Linux, and the office suites will be built 
| around OpenOffice rather than Microsoft's offerings.
