What is Ubuntu's future plan if the desktop OS is dead?
"...[T]his shift from local bits to web bits derives in part from the market leaders' inability to get excited about their desktop products anymore."
First question that comes to mind is really? The COO of Ubuntu's Canonical argues that the desktop OS is virtually dead, replaced by "a new breed of "desktop" platform." He contends that the big players that have our attention like Google and Facebook are increasingly OS agnostic, thus making the base OS more and more irrelevant.
Being part of the company that sponsors the most popular Linux distro out there, I am tempted to wonder what strategic plans Ubuntu has in place for the future Matt is predicting when the OS is irrelevant.
