[News] Windows Vista Debacle to Help Mac OS and GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Windows XP Continues to Win Over Vista

| All Doom and Gloom for Windows? I think this is where Microsoft's existing 
| Windows market share comes into play, regardless of how unimpressive a 
| Windows release is, the end user often times finds themselves alright with 
| using an older copy of the OS.   
| In the future, there is evidence that the migration to OS X and Linux will 
| continue to grow. However, OS X is limited to one line of computers, while 
| Linux still needs to get a stronger marketplace presence with the mainstream 
| audience.   



Survey Says … Linux Desktop Is Ever More Popular

| The first thing we can say about the Linux desktop in 2007 is that there are 
| more users than ever. The Linux Foundation 2006 survey had fewer than 10,000 
| people signing in. This year more than 20,000 Linux desktop users reported 
| in.

| 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.

Desktop Linux on the Rise, Linux Foundation Reports

,----[ Quote ]
| For starters, almost 20,000 self-selected users filled out this year's survey 
| compared with fewer than 10,000 in 2006's survey. 
| [...]
| In those businesses and organizations that have deployed Linux desktops, 39.5 
| percent are running Linux on more than half of their machines. 

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
