Linux: no longer a winner?

Filed under
Linux

paul murphy: I was thinking about the future of Linux when it occurred to me that one path for its future can seen as a simple consequence of what we mean by “winning.” In other words, asking whether Linux will still be a winner in ten years leads first to the question of what we mean by “winner” and then to an answer about where Linux is going.
