    My favorite Eric Raymond quote and why Linux will win the desktop:

    " I know [there's a] camp that thinks allowing proprietary codecs into Linux distros will corrupt our vital bodily fluids or something. My view is we need to get majority market share so we can crush the proprietary codecs out of existence. If that requires a temporary compromise, I'm for it."

    With the preinstallation of Linux on hardware the days of proprietary codecs are numbered.
