just like most of you, I wouldn't call it an "article" either, but he does have a point. I mean what else is there to say? Of course we can point to tablets and phones (even Chrome Books) and the diminishing importance of the desktop .. but we all know that, right?

In the good old days linux and F/LOSS fans like me would have jumped at Microsoft's bold announcement. Now, most reaction is a weak "meh"! I don't think Microsoft's posturing merits anything longer than this minimalist "article." It's a good example of how much we care about it ;)

Also the article mentions the browser and more than 50% of all webusers use a non-Microsoft-and-open-source browser (Firefox or Chrome (that last one is based on 98% or so open source code)).
