PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The GNOME foundation and the LiMo group announced a partnership to help push Linux forward in the consumer field. The only notice that anyone has seem to have taken is mockery. So why can someone announce some dedication to promoting open source software in the mobile space and generate no enthusiasm in the mobile space? Android.

The reason no one cares is because we've heard it before. Various organizations heralding a new age, etc. etc. It's just talk. Like how "this will be the year of the Linux desktop".

We'll care when there are results. Android gets the press because Android got results. Well meaning intentions are great, but what counts is results.

Problem is that nobody ever expected LiMo to go anywhere (well, perhaps people did at the very beginning). There is no real need to rub it in their face and exclaim how EVERYBODY IS DOOMED because LiMo is going nowhere.

It IS the year of the Linux desktop. I've switched virtually all of my clients over to Linux Mint. Not one of them has complained. Once.

The problem is, as a tech support worker, I've made such a good decision for my clients that they hardly ever need me now.

I won't be needed again till some middle manager decides to upgrade. LOL
