A Year of Victory for Linux December 5, 2004

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

Once again, My favorite eWeak editorial writer Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols opens his mouth and reminds me why his mother should have swallowed that shot. Geez, like I have said before eWeak should really monitor or do reearch into their claims before they print. First he exaggerates the state of Linux. Adoption isnt that great, there are adoptions but people also adopt Microsofts technologies so its a two way street. Linux has not really replaced Microsoft deployments, they are mainly scooping up UNIX houses, and small businesses because they tend to want things for free, as for government deployments, show me one government agency besides the US Navy who have done a full scale Migration, the US Navy changed their old SGI Irix sonar system with Yellowdog Linux on Xserves. Munich I hear you say, Munich is still dicking around trying to figure out when they want to do the migration, they have been trying to figure out when they want to do the migration since early 2003. Yet, 2004 still wasnt the year of the Linux desktop. So of course in the natural progression of things, SJVN claims 2005 will be the year of the Linux desktop. Sun has a real shot with Solaris 10, its going to be people like myself who will adopt it. People who dont care about conspiracy theories, who dont care how much a community tries to demonize a proprietary company and those of us who just ignore zealot journalists.
