Is Linux Dead?

zosima Re:Not quite (968 comments)

Well, with quotes from the article like "Until recently, interacting with Linux was almost entirely text-driven -- much like Windows' precursor, DOS." and "A Linux-based open-source program called Evolution looks pretty much like a standard Windows desktop" I would say the article is pretty wrong (unless 10 years ago was recently). They seem to get the market impact about right but as far as the technology... well, it seems like less than thorough job of research/reporting.

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
