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.

I work for a corporation in Canada, and all of our techs, all of our execs, managers and supervisors have cell phones of some type. I think your numbers may be a bit off, as in my last 3 jobs it was the same way, and they were all in different industries (cement manufacturing, post-secondary education and a cable company). Your statements totally go perpendicular to my personal 10 year experience.
