ZDNet looks forward
to when Linux will surpass OS X. "The premium cost of Apple hardware hurts and OS X only runs on Apple hardware. Let me remind you that none of this is really about whether you should switch to OS X or not. Its about what happens when desktop Linux reaches that point where it provides an experience that meets or beats the one that that sets the standard for *ix-based desktop operating systems: OS X. When it does--and I dont doubt that it will--Apple will be in a real pickle because of the hardware 'problem.' Users will have significantly more hardware options for running desktop Linux and the likelihood that theyll find something to meet their needs in terms of cost and form factor will be excellent.
