Speaking at LinuxWorld, CEO Kevin Carmony clarifies the company's goals, defends its Linux credentials and more.(

Actually, I think Carmony may be onto something. Most of us are looking for a Dell or HP to bring GNU/Linux to the masses. I think it would be better - and more in line with the FOSS philosophy to have several smaller vendors distributing GNU/Linux and various solution stacks on top of that. If some of the smaller OEMs would pick a distro and round it out as a turn-key solution for various markets, We would not have to worry about whether Dell or HP owns the hardware market. Nor would we have to worry whether Microsoft - or any other company - owns the software market. There's room for all kinds of fish in the technology sea. - dcparris
