Legal Should I be sad or relieved? Groklaw, the website that played a central role in the SCO vs. sanity case, has just announced it will close up shop on May 16 of this year. Groklaw's place in history has been secured, surely, but in recent years, the site became more and more like a relic from the past, clearly stuck in the everyone vs. Microsoft mindset of the late '90s and early 2000s. Even in today's announcement post, Groklaw shows that its time has indeed come.

The US is the largest smartphone market.


Depends on how you define your markets. For example, while individual countries in Europe (or Asia) may not constitute bigger markets the region as whole may do.

Since when does having a small market share equate failure?


Depends on what argument you're trying to make. A common argument seems to be that Linux on the desktop is a failure due to small market share.

It failed at mainstream success. It's always had success as a hobbyist system.

Redefine success if you have failed. Seriously?
