Linux: Desktop Linux Survey Results Published

Posted on in Categories News last updated November 30, 2005

In Q3/2005 OSDL Desktop Linux (DTL) Working Group launched a month-long online Linux Client survey with a goal of reaching consensus on barriers to desktop adoption and priorities. It has published Desktop Linux Survey Results. It is base upon 3,300 user responses. Top two reasons given for deploying Linux on the desktop:

  • Employees requesting Linux (user demand) and
  • Competitors have successfully deployed Linux

So Microsoft claim of TCO (total cost of ownership), or security are just useless :D. You can read complete survey here (in PDF file) or just go to Slashdot discussion. Firefox 1.5 final now available, just friendly remainder to all of you ;)
