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.

"Linux has one, last, chance to become the No1 OS in a particular consumer-oriented market (not counting servers): the mobile phone market."

that's what urked me. One, last, single, change, withhold the drama and all u get is ' companies are trying out linux again, let's see if this time it'll fly '

it's not so dramatic as to say, this is their last chance.

this is also implying that linux was on phones before and failed.. i dunno was it? it wasn't on any of my phones in order to judge for myself.

that's all ;-p
