Re: The year of the Linux desktop

"The "problem" with BSDs and to a much lesser extend Linux is having properly written drivers for the hardware, especially with really new equipment. I'm betting the Chinese Gov could make that happen for any OS they pick."

Well, they're going to be controlling the "Chinese-only" hardware too, so that shouldn't be a problem!
