Linux Linux has one, last, chance to become the No1 OS in a particular consumer-oriented market (not counting servers): the mobile phone market. The open nature and yes, the hype around Linux has made lots of mobile-oriented companies to consider using Linux for their next-generation cellphones. But there is a major problem on the way to success, a problem which is created not by Linux itself, but by the greed and close-mindness of these same companies that endorse Linux.

My take on it is that with BREW low and high resources, Java low and high resources, and limitations and differences between hardwares, it's a very difficult issue to tackle in a standard way, and it has nothing to do with Linux in particular. Actually, Linux should feel at home in such diverse ecosystem.
