Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

Linux market share declining?.... The Linux adoption rate in China is massive. Perhaps the stats you're reading don't include non-english language distros. Even in Japan, traditionally a Win/Mac stronghold, Linux is making small inroads.

52 million Linux desktops in Brazil should help matters in the Linux market-share area....

As for MS, the *very best* thing that MS can do to help Linux is to keep Vista at the centre of their strategy (as they're doing with Windows 7, which has Vista as its core). Thanks, MS! ;)

Oh, puh-lease. Linux market share in China is DWARFED by the number of pirated Windows installs.
