Is windoze 7 a linux killer?

Well I suppose it will be a linux killer, to the same extent that windoze nt was a "better unix than unix"... Yeah, that much...

No but Windows 7 is

Windows of any flavour have pretty much squashed Linux (or should I follow the above trend and call it Linsux?) on the desktop.

By any standard of measurement Linux on the desktop is a NICHE market OS. You can't "kill" something that is already dead.

Let me know when Linux Desktop (and feel free to lump all 9 bazillion distro's into one group) nudges out MacOS for a far distant second in the desktop market and if I'm not dead or senile I'll do a little happy dance with you.

have much trouble with logic?

When did windoze crush linux? Linux started out with 0% market share, and it has increased every year. In other words, windoze doesn't seem to be able to stop linux, despite billions of dollars in advertising hype and bribes and strong arming of the vendors.

If that's your idea of "crushing" you must not own a dctionary, LOL.

Calligra Gemini - now also for Linux :)

Some people may remember earlier this year when Krita Gemini became (to my knowledge) the first open source software to become greenlit on Steam. For those who don't, yeah, that really happened ;) Krita Gemini was a project created in cooperation between the KDE community's Calligra team, the little software consultancy KO GmbH, and a large semiconductor manufacturer named Intel, who had some devices they needed to be able to show off. Krita Gemini is available on the Steam store, though not yet for Linux (as it turns out, Steam packaging for Linux is even more awkward than building stand-alone installers for Windows, an odd sort of situation for us used to sensible package managers) Read more
