Linux Reaching a Tipping Point on Desktop, Writer Says

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux on the desktop and running in a corporate environment is rapidly 
| growing to the point now that a “tipping point” has been reached in the 
| operating system battle with Windows, writes Stephen Vaughan-Nichols at 
| Desktop Linux.com.

| Linux distribution of choice.  


Survey: Desktop Linux use grows

,----[ Quote ]
| DesktopLinux.com, which is a Web site devoted to, obviously, desktop Linux, 
| has finished a survey that found more than a doubling of Linux desktop users 
| in the past year.

| Okay, now lets tie this all back in together. Novell claimed several months 
| back in a video ad that Desktop Linux users accounted for upwards of 
| 30,000,000 different people. That's 30 million. Recent statements made by 
| some Novell representatives indicate that they expect there are upwards of 
| 50,000,000 Desktop Linux users. Microsoft has never contested the number of 
| Desktop Linux users, and if anything the deal Microsoft signed with Novell 
| was tacit agreement that Microsoft believed those numbers to be accurate.
