attempts to define
what the year of the Linux desktop
really means, in an iTWire article.
"What exactly do people mean when they say that a particular year will be the year of the Linux desktop? Do they mean that the number of people using Linux on the desktop will outnumber those using Windows? Even the most ardent Linux advocate and fanboy would say no.
Then is the year of the Linux desktop, the year when Linux becomes a mainstream operating system, the year when it is offered for sale by big computer sellers and resellers? If so, 2007 fits the bill very well with even Dell starting to sell both desktops and laptops with Linux installed.
