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.

Exactly.

This was a great article that exposes the propoganda of linux evangelists.

Linus is just a KERNEL. That's not an operating system.

Maybe these phone companies should try REACT OS or BSD.
