Linux "If you consider NetApplications' data set, then Linux owns only about 1 percent of the desktop OS market and Windows has almost 92 percent. But if you consider all computing platforms, including mobile, than Windows has only 20 percent and Linux has 42 percent - and that would be in the form of Google's Android alone." No more or less legitimate than claiming Windows owns 92% of the market. It's all a matter of perspective.

Smartphones and Tablets have all what is needed. The only limiting factor to use them as 100% replacement for workstation-desktops are input (keyboard/mouse) and output (Monitor). That will be solved in 2013/2014.

There is just no good reason for having a huge fat tower under your desk you cannot easily take with you, cannot use without being connected to power-plug, cannot use without static internet-cable. The raise of laptops was just the first step. Notebooks and Tablets are the logical consequence. A smartphone in your pocket or a watch on your arm the goal. The have enough power, have so much advantages. Only thing missing are input- and output devices. Say hello to Google Glas, to projector-technology, to flexible keyboards you can roll together.
