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.

  • ocs-client GSoC
    So my GSoC is coming to its end. I have no cool screenshots to upload this time and I have no new great features to talk about, in fact Caludio and I manly focused on bugfixing and testing. We have spent time also discussing about possible changes and improvements to the current OCS protocol. So is the client ready do be lunched? In short I would say that no, not yet.. although most of its features are implemented and it is usable, it is still an “under construction” project, we both still have to make some important decisions to make it usable to everyone.
  • The Fiber Engine Poll, Updates, and Breeze
  • Bringing Akonadi Next up to speed
    and refactoring it again, to make sure the codebase remains as clean as possible. The result of that is that an implementation of a simple resource only takes a couple of template instantiations, apart from code that interacts with the datasource (e.g. your IMAP Server) which I obviously can’t do for the resource.
  • New linter integration plugins for KDevelop
  • Artikulate Plans for Randa
    Language learning is often considered as the task of memorizing new vocabulary and understanding the new grammar rules. Yet for most, the most challenging part is to actually get used to speak the new language. This is a problem that Artikulate approaches with a simple idea: to learn the correct pronunciation of a word or even a longer phrase, the learner listens to a native speaker recording, repeats and recordings it, and finally compares both recordings to improve herself/himself with the next try.
