Re: Year of the Linux desktop?
>> What's required is an end to the business agreements that force every PC buyer to purchase a Windows license. All Windows' domination flows from that:
Penguin/Mac user here, but that's just not true. It's prefectly possible to buy a PC without a copy of Windows, I bought 6 for a test rig only last month.
What keeps Windows as the main player in corporate environments is the ability to manage hundreds or thousands of machines centrally, using Acive Directory, Single Sign-On, Group Policy and other tools specifically designed by Microsoft for that purpose. There's no equivalent for MacOS or Linux and that's why IT departments keep using MS products. Yes, they're shite, but they're the only shite that does that stuff.
