Submission + - A Post-Desktop View of Apple and Free Software

TheRaven64 writes: David Chisnall has recently written two pieces describing the post-destop world. The first, on InformIT, discusses how Free Software can take advantage of the transition. In this piece, he claims that Microsoft has already won the desktop war, and it's a mistake for the Free Software community to keep fighting it. The second piece covers how Apple's iPhone and Apple TV fit in to the picture. The article asks:

Apple has lost the desktop war twice now; once with the Apple II and once with the Mac. The iPhone and Apple TV are the first salvos in the post-desktop war. Where exactly do they fit in?

ASCII a stupid question, you get an EBCDIC answer.
