Linux

+ - The market has rejected Linux desktops.Get over it

Howpostsgetratedsuck (612917) writes "Hiner writing for the TechRepublic has an article that Linux will never take over the desktop. FTA:"It’s time to stop all of the misguided predictions about Linux becoming a force on the desktop. That ship has sailed. The masses don’t want it. Businesses don’t want it. Even Google can’t change that."

I've been reading /. for a long time and I haven't seen anything in the desktop market to believe otherwise."

Comment: floppy disks (Score 1) 351

I loved getting a new version of borland C. You would receive a box with 23 3.5" floppy disks and have to sit there for a few hours while the installation software said, "Please insert disk #" Of course this was on my massive 15 inch monitor. I was totally amazed when I received a version with a CD-ROM. Not that my PC had a CD-ROM, but a little Novel Networks magic and you could remote mount a drive. Heady days indeed.
