Re: Android is attacking the desktop - WIndows is history
You do realise that the kernel used in Android is significantly forked from the main Linux branch? You must do, as you already know everything... http://www.zdnet.com/blog/open-source/linus-torvalds-on-android-the-linux-fork/9426
Additionally, you are yet again confusing the kernel with an actual OS, you have been told before that the two are not one and the same. If you choose to use the term Linux as a catch all, then you should make that clear instead of making yourself look foolish.
As I said in my previous post, the figures may not be accurate. If I were to expand on that I would hesitantly say that they are representative though, which means that Linux as a desktop OS still have some way to go before it even escapes being a marginal installation.
In my opinion, note that I say opinion here, MS got something right with XP and to a lesser extent with 7. I have to wonder if they will ever release a version 9 of Windows, maybe with their new strategy for development we will have Windows 8 for quite a long time, in a similar manner to Mac OS X.
In the meantime, it may be better for you to stay away from stating hyperbole as fact. We all enjoyed a nice quiet week while you were back in the institution.
