Editorial Rob Enderle wrote an intriguing editorial for Digital Trends entitled "You can't call 'time out' in Silicon Valley," which examines the current battle between Apple, Google and Microsoft over the future of computing. In it, he draws some interesting parallels from the history of warfare, and notes that Microsoft and Google have made some of the classic blunders that have caused great armies to fail dramatically.

What does that have to do with anything? Linux is for a very minor sector of nerds and IT guys. If you don't realize that, you are clueless.

Not in the server sector, it isn't. If you don't realize that, you are clueless.

If you're using a Bada, WebOS or Android phone or tablet then you're running a consumer product on top of a Linux kernel.

Smartphones, tablets, media players, set-top boxes and cloud solutions. Linux is all there, pervasively invading the consuming industry. Only a minor sector cares as you said, but a major part of clueless consumers is using it.

It shows that Enderle is a paid shill whose opinions carries 0 credibility.
