Linux in the Post-PC World
This year, IBM, Compaq, Dell, HP, SGI, and numerous other companies have announced they will be shipping and supporting hardware running the Linux operating system in addition to (or instead of) Microsoft Windows. We have also seen major software vendors such as Oracle, Computer Associates, SAP, Corel and others announce their intentions to make their applications available for Linux. It is no surprise that a fervent Linux vs. Windows discussion is emerging. While this certainly makes for interesting headlines, it is myopic when contrasted with the more significant changes at hand.
