Linux The BBC interviews Torvalds. I like this bit: "For me, Linux on the desktop is where I started, and Linux on the desktop is literally what I still use today primarily - although I obviously do have other Linux devices, including an Android phone - so I'd personally really love for it to take over in that market too. But I guess that in the meantime I can't really complain about the successes in other markets." Linux on the desktop is quite passe. Phones and servers is where it's at.

There is a laptop there right? So I don't see your point.

That's not a laptop. That's an HID for a phone.

My point is, in your picture you need something else besides the handset to provide more usable interaction interface. This kind of solution defeats the point of handset being portable. So I'll just restate what I said above - handsets aren't going to replace normal interfaces, until these interfaces will be achieved in truly portable manner (some holographics or what not).
