And now, he has helped shoot down an important Microsoft patent in Redmond's crusade to wring licensing dollars out of Google Android and other versions of Linux."

And how many years have we been hearing this? Since the 1990s?

"Desktop linux" is a mess of ideas and projects that may be good for progress and testing out new concepts but as a platform to develop for it's a failure by nature.

EDIT: By "develop for" i mean the for the big guys. Adobe, avid, autodesk, the whole friggin gaming/entertainment software industry.
