Over the last week since my short review on gOS and the introduction of the ASUS EEE PC with it's stream line version of Xandros I have been thinking about what value this has for the Linux OS and it's familiarity to the masses.

In the mainstream world of computing I think that Linux hasnt even touched everyone in a marketing sense of the word. I keep reading artciles throughout the internet about Linux and it's reference to being "The new Kid on the block" and even words like I have mentioned "The Scarce OS". Is Linux really that scarce? I suppose if one were able to count every Linux OS that is on a computer that it would indeed not mount to much in the big picture. Of course, I am comparing this to the total market share that Windows TM must have. It's strong hold on the whole computer industry is really staggering and give Microsoft credit they are a massive media machine and they did come along at the right time and provide everyone in my opinion probably their first look atr a computer going back to the old days of MS DOS.
