Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

I think Linux will benefit just as much as Apple. With a worldwide recession looming, many people will tighten their belts.... and cheap Linux based systems would be the optimal solution. Many poorer nations could buy used computers from the west and use them with a lightweight Xfce based distro.


Look, I can only respond by referring you to real-world numbers: Apple is increasing in market share. Linux is declining in market share. I see nothing in the market which will change those dynamics.
