IBM, Canonical, Red Hat and Novell have put out an interesting joint release about how they are working together with regional hardware manufacturers to “to deliver Microsoft-free personal computing choices with Lotus Notes and Lotus Symphony in the one billion-unit desktop market worldwide by 2009.”

In celebration of Linux’s imminent domination of the desktop market I thought it would be worth remembering how we got here:
