Linux Linux has one, last, chance to become the No1 OS in a particular consumer-oriented market (not counting servers): the mobile phone market. The open nature and yes, the hype around Linux has made lots of mobile-oriented companies to consider using Linux for their next-generation cellphones. But there is a major problem on the way to success, a problem which is created not by Linux itself, but by the greed and close-mindness of these same companies that endorse Linux.

There are usually not any particular compatibility issues on the Linux platform. Such incompatibilities usually stem from lack of libraries in certain distributions, and have nothing to do with the compatibility level in Linux, but merely in that distribution. In which case it should be avoided, or the necessary libraries installed.

Claiming that "Linux has had compatibility issues from day one on all platforms" is however right out false, and you know that. Linux suffer no more from this than Haiku does or OS X or any other system. You know that as well.
