Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu InfoWorld's Savio Rodrigues sees 2010 as a watershed year for Ubuntu, one that could herald meaningful enterprise interest in the OS, thanks to a rising tide of developers - and deployment servers - adopting the OS. "As with many recent trends in the IT industry, developers become ambassadors for products they enjoy using and have quickly become an early indicator for enterprise technology usage in the future. In a seemingly perfect storm, Ubuntu is benefiting from strong developer usage, and the fact that developers are increasingly selecting Amazon's EC2 cloud platform bodes well for continued Ubuntu success on EC2," Rodrigues writes, noting that Ubuntu has surpassed Red Hat usage on deployment servers as well. "As that occurs, IT decision makers will need to consider or reconsider Ubuntu for usage within the enterprise. Rest assured that Red Hat won't sit idly by during these discussions."

Did you read the article?

I agree with dylansmrjones the year of the Linux desktops already happened. Several Linux distros produce desktops that are more than usable, many Windows users would be better off with these distros.

However, the article brings up potential issues between Canonical and Redhat. I'd like to see them both strong. I'm interested in the way Ubuntu's going with Unity, Wayland etc looks like innovation to me. Nevertheless Redhat's a more major contributor Linux development.

Issues? i don't think so. The market is big enough for both and working together would benefit them more than rivalry.

I said potential issues.

I agree in a large, even expanding market there should be enough space for both companies to find their niche and cooperation would be to the benefit of all.

However thats not to say it will go that way people have egos,can be foolish and can be sectarian etc etc.
