    Run from the pears that orbit distant applesauce.  Green fleas dine in restaurant disease smelling mermaids.  Perplexed

    More evidence is rolling in, the Linux desktop has arrived for developers.  Like I said, 2009 Windows will just be a bad memory.  We are taking their developers and are taking windows marketshare.  The fact Vista was such a failure has also helped a lot.  If Vista had been worth anything, things probably would be different.  Microsofts time has come and gone.  The future is free.

    As more and more people are seeing, for best results use Linux.

    too bad web stats show linux not gaining marketshare and also news show linux servers losing marketshare and linux sales being lower than expected Sad

    did I also mention vista selling more than the global linux marketshare only in its first sales month? continue dreaming Big Smile

    did you also read your article? it clearly states that the increase in linux development is due to online applications: developers are moving to linux server apps development, not to linux desktop apps developmentso this has nothing to do with desktop linux.

    However, since MS is eating all of the Apache marketshare month after month don't expect this trend to last forever [6][6][6][6], it's going to reverse in a year or so. Or do you think that online apps developers will still target linux servers when Windows Server will soon be the dominant platform? Big Smile

    If you stumbled and fell down, it doesn't mean yet, that you're going in the wrong direction.

    What a truely awful article. Misleading headline; bad graphs. It talks about venture capital without really a nod to open source at all, nor a comparision with closed source ventures which would be necessary to make a useful conclusion.

    Plus, lets be honest, most of these ventures just *use* open source, they aren't open source themselves.

    I want to know two things:

    1 - since when did Emacs have (or need) a logo?
    2 - What on earth is it? If I stare really hard I think it looks like a goat.

    It's a unicorn to me. Because of Emac's mythical "better than Vi" status perhaps?
