The future is Linux. in Tech Talk Posted March 3, 2013 · Report reply lets not forget the efforts google is putting behind chrome os. the mobile and embedded market is clearly being dominated by linux, but when will linux make the same strides for workstations (desktops / laptops)? if google can put the same weight behind chrome they did with android, it may be sooner rather than later, but we'll have to see. regardless, linux coming into prominence is good for everyone. it provides real competition and forces microsoft (eventually) to take their crap seriously.
