Linux on desktop is a diverse market - really

Don't expect hegemony from a single Linux vendor on the desktop comparable with Microsoft's Office, as rival frameworks and implementations tackle different markets.

He added that business users are less interested in the technical aspects of their desktops than technology experts, and simply want something that's familiar, reliable and comes at a low cost.

SAN FRANCISCO - Admission to the Web 2.0 Conference costs $2,800. That's a big chunk of change, but the place is sold out, and the small conference rooms and the one large presentation hall are beyond full most of the time. I've asked several dozen attendees (out of about 800) if they felt they were getting good value for their money, and all of them have said "Yes." But given some of the ideas floating through the halls, one might suspect their judgment.

Palm Linux mobile phones coming this year?

  • LinuxDevices.com (Posted by tadelste on Oct 7, 2005 11:06 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
Palm will ship Linux-powered mobile phones this year, say sources claiming to be close to the company. The devices will be powered by Wind River Linux, and pending carrier reaction, may well be the first Linux-powered handsets distributed widely within the US. So far, Linux mobile phones have proliferated primarily in Asia, where mobile network build-outs have been larger and arguably more advanced than in the US, in part because some Asian countries lack significant last-mile copper infrastructure. Strong sales of Linux handsets in Japan helped Linux surpass Windows Mobile in handset OS shipments earlier this year, according to Gartner. Still, Symbian remains the leader among "complex" phone OSes, and is expected to gain marketshare over the next several years, while Linux and Windows Mobile will also grow, studies from both IDC and Gartner suggest.
