Submission + - The Linux Rebellion 2013 (

Orion Blastar writes: "In the year 2013 there may be a Linux Rebellion as people get tired of the same old song and dance by Microsoft and Apple.

A new operating system, shutting out older systems, and breaking compatibility with older software. Is there an alternative to Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.8? Yeah it is called Linux, and it even supports older systems.

Video game makers like Valve Software may be porting their video games to Linux because of the way Windows 8 breaks compatibility and changes the way the GUI works. The Steam Linux client will be in beta testing soon. Maybe in 2013 it will be done and The Linux Rebellion can start at least for video game players."
