Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

I dont think so. PC's and desktop's are going to stay with us for the next few decades and the competition isnt over. It will never be over.

And the adoption of Linux on other areas, like smartphones, will just help it grow on desktop.

Give it more time. Like a decade or so.
