      Thank you guys! May 2014 be a Linux year. More Android, more Ubuntu, more Linux distros and news, and more open source!

        IMO 2013 WAS the year of Linux. Linux on/underneath Android. Android has clearly won the popularity contest for mobile and this has put the Linux kernel underneath, and some of the common Unix user-space, into the hands of a huge number of people.

        2014 too, maybe, but Google is worryingly kind of slowly forking the Linux kernel into an Android specific variant, such as replacing the BT stack Bluez with Bluedroid.

        Linux on the Desktop ? LOL. I’ve run it exclusively for over 10 years now and love it, but even Ubuntu and other “easier to use” distributions have made little headway against Windows on the desktop, even within large companies and governments with large dedicated IT staff to handle the “hard stuff”.

        Consumer moves to tablets and convertibles could eventually displace Windows in the home at least. But by then, those of us who were swearing at Microsoft in the 90′s and 2000′s, may well be swearing at the evil Google colossus. IMO Google seems intent on “conquering the world”, or at least the highest profits parts.

        Goog has been GREAT at battling the Microsoft monster, and keeping Apple corralled at the high end.

        But once upon a time MS and even Apple were the “heros” in the fight against IBM and the centralized corporate mainframe mentality.

        TL;DR: Whatever, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ! :)

      Thanks for having the guts to say Merry Christmas @ “AA”. In todays world and it’s political correctness, i’m happy to wish all of the staff at “AA” a very merry Christmas. Time is counted in years of “BC” —> Christ —-> “AD”.
