Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

Well, my router appears to run Linux; at the very least, it runs GPL software. I know because it came with a notice of where you can find the source code for the GPL software.

I've seen a GPL notice in several Panasonic TVs, and the URL given for source code does include a Linux kernel.

I also know there are a couple of set-top-boxes around that run Linux, and my DVD recorder appears to run either Linux or a Unix.
