Jim Zemlin is executive director of the Linux Foundation has posted some interesting information and very bold prediction about Linux desktop:


For those that decry the constant prediction of the “year of the Linux desktop”. I am happy to say that next year Linux may actually ship on more desktops than Windows or the Mac. That is right, I said next year. What is driving this? Two words: fast boot.

  1. its going to be an good change but…if that happens but the gui of windows gonna beat the treat of this man..surly keep dreaming ;-0

  2. Every year since 2000 it has been the year of Linux. If Ubuntu is the holy grail that will lead the masses to Linux then it is unlikely it will ever ship more than Apple and Windows.
