PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And here's to the good stuff. When HP bought Palm a few weeks ago, the computer giant made it very clear they are going to put the webOS on a tablet, and maybe even on a netbook. While it has never been a secret that the webOS actually runs just fine on x86, nobody ever tried to actually boot it on real hardware. Until now, that is - and it works, without any modifications.

Anyway. Nice to see that actually that what Torvalds predicted in his auto-biography more than 10 years ago is actually happening. Linux EVERYWHERE.


Everywhere but the desktop.

Let's not forget that Linus also called OS X a "piece of crap" in that same auto-biography.

Linux has been the perfect competition for MS and Apple: All talk and no show.

Linux is only great on embedded devices, servers or on devices without X.org and associated cruft.

Says you. It's all a matter of opinion. I have been using linux for a decade and I wouldn't want any other desktop OS.
