Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And over the weekend, the saga regarding Canonical, GNOME, and KDE has continued. Lots of comments all over the web, some heated, some well-argued, some wholly indifferent. Most interestingly, Jeff Waugh and Dave Neary have elaborated on GNOME's position after the initial blog posts by Shuttleworth and Seigo, providing a more coherent look at GNOME's side of the story.

For all the chatter about the "bazaar", the "Cathedral", "Many eyes make bugs cry etc" linux continues to lose its relevance.

How android webos splashtop are just different forms of Linux. So Linux is gaining relevance. Ok some distributions might lose there relevance and disappear has this happened before yes. Should we expect this to happen in future yes.

In an era when you have the top tablet maker talking "Post PC" - linux didn't even reach that level of recognition in the first place.

Old business game change the market place. Linux is working perfectly change the market to suit it.

The shift to web apps only makes the problem worse as the linux desktop solves a problem that Microsoft solved a long time ago, and it does it in a more painful fashion.

Really MS did not solve it. Web apps is just another option.

Developers: Instead of working on this non winner, go build a web app that people will actually use and value.

Servers to support web apps are still required. Please don't forget this. Web apps still play into Linux strong points. This is all about changing the market to suit where Linux is strong and where Windows is weak.
