Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

Um you would be wrong maybe you should look closer, The dell ones are in several EU markets the RHEL are only in Australia, so Only 1 of them was US only.

Which is completely useless to me - who is located down in New Zealand.

Not that I'm interested in it, I have a Mac and happy with it. Just pointing out that if Linux wants to compete, it needs to be offered globally.

"if Linux wants to compete, it needs to be offered globally."

You can't download Linux globally?

Actually there is only one EU market. It's called single market for a reason.

The Dell/Ubuntu machines are available in three localisations, which already cover a big portion of all native speakers in the EU.
