Desktop Linux Is Dead 1348

digitaldc writes with this quote from PCWorld: "It kills me to say this: The dream of Linux as a major desktop OS is now pretty much dead. Despite phenomenal security and stability — and amazing strides in usability, performance, and compatibility — Linux simply isn't catching on with desktop users. And if there ever was a chance for desktop Linux to succeed, that ship has long since sunk. ... Ultimately, Linux is doomed on the desktop because of a critical lack of content. And that lack of content owes its existence to two key factors: the fragmentation of the Linux platform, and the fierce ideology of the open-source community at large."

the ReviveR (1106541) writes "Patent war between Apple and Nokia is now official. Some time ago Nokia sued Apple for infringing its patents. Apple is now countersuing Nokia with 13 patents of their own. Nokia seemed to choose very carefully the 10 patents out of portfolio of 11,000 in its own suit. Only time will tell if Apple's patents are a match and who ends up paying who."
