PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, this certainly isn't particularly surprising. The rising popularity of Android leaves more victims in its wake than just Windows Mobile. Sony Ericsson, one of the major manufacturers of Symbian phones (other than Nokia) has just announced it will pretty much abandon the platform to focus entirely on Android - leaving Nokia as the sole person cheering for team Symbian.

You probably meant Unix.


"Linux" means a bit more than Unix in terms of functionality. When you say Unix, you don't necessarily expect stuff like X11, dbus, gconf, Gtk or Qt to be available.

I don't think those are necessarily implied by the term Linux, either. I don't have X11, dbus, gconf, GTK, or QT availible on my servers. When talking to people about them, I'd say Linux and people would understand that without expecting any of those desktop layers.


I thought you were referring to the standard tools and libraries being available. ( which actually are different on *BSD, Mac, Linux, but somewhat similar).
