SGI and IRIX Can a proprietary Unix be a desktop OS that competes with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux desktops?

And you must be seriously brainwashed by the M$ Longhorn propaganda. Longhorn has abosolutely nothing to offer on the server side that Unix or Linux can't counter. Plus both Unix and Linux are now cheaper than Windows -- the tide has reversed and Redmond folk are going to try some of their own poison pretty soon -- they are not the cheaper alternative any more.
