Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

what ever we do microsoft always wins!!!
- I searched for a laptop in feb 2010 that has i3, 4 GB Ram, 320 GB SATA HDD, 802.11 b/g/n, bluetooth and Linux pre installed. i did not find a single laptop!! and what ever linux laptops were there in market were running old processor at much higher price.
- What i had to do was buy a laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed and format it to run linux. Ultimately MS got its money!


Indeed.

As it turns out, apparently Windows is a very popular choice of purchase from computer stores where one can only buy machines with Windows pre-installed, and nothing else. An amazing fact is that sales figures of Windows reach 100% at computer stores where one can only buy Windows!

Up to 90% or perhaps more of those machines end up running Windows, can you believe it?
