Is Linux at the End of its Life Cycle?

Microsoft 3

Glyn Moody (946055) writes "That's what Nikolai Pryanishnikov, president of Microsoft Russia, seems to think. Quoted in the context of continuing questions about Russia's plans to create its own national operating system based on GNU/Linux, Pryanishnikov said [via Google Translate]: "We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is at the end of its life cycle." An off-the-cuff comment, or something more?"

Unbelievable! How poor and fascist arguments... "Linux... is at the end of its life cycle" - no comment...

End of Cycle? (1)

Linux just don't have a good marketing strategy... Its a good, stable, and most of all free. Linux has to try to differentiate somehow. Like Android right? Now from phones to netbooks. Linux just needs to get their goals right.

Why is this relevant to anything? (1)

Curious as to why the opinions of a defunct nation-state is relevant to Linuxes life cycle. Linux is becoming increasingly popular and increasingly compatible with newer and legacy technologies. It has the possibility to overtake Windows in the near future as the go-to OS due to its massive community, support and low, low price of absolutely free. Linux will live forever. To say it is nearing the end of it's life cycle is evidence of Nikolai Pryanishnikov's ignorance of the modern world and of how technology works in general.
