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!

I know it's not easy to dig this up, but I'd like to see some numbers on investment done on Linux; I mean the amount of actual money spent on employing people working with non-server, non-embedded Linux.

I'm pretty sure that if you saw the year-over-year trendline, you'd be surprised how much bigger Linux is now (even outside servers, embedded and Android) compared to what it has been before.
