The Desktop War

Some people have decided that MS Windows has won the desktop war, and there will be no competition for the foreseeable future. I think that assumption is a little premature, for two reasons.
The Desktop is Not Conceded

A few points (or rather, bullets):

  • Linux is a success on the desktop, even without MS Windows application support.

  • Support for MS Windows applications is important, though it isn't paramount.

  • MS Windows application support is not being ignored, though it is not yet ready for “prime time” use.
