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.

Linux is still a WIP but it's progress is very rapid. 2.6.40 is meant to have nouveau power management on Fermi GPUs. That'll see performance LEAP up on the current generation nvidia cards. They already reverse engineered CUDA. It's only a matter of time before the GPL'd drivers catch up to the closed source ones. In 2 years time Linux gpu drivers will be where wifi is now. Working out of the box with no config from users with all major expected features supported. After that it's just a matter of app support.
