"The model for proprietary Operating Systems is dead. Like software license keys, and proprietary document formats, proprietary Operating Systems are just so 1980s. It's 2009. Look around, you'll see that Openness is everywhere - desktop computers, servers, network devices, embedded devices, and even cell phones are either already running Open Operating Systems, or are moving towards using them. As pointed out in the recent linuxplanet.com article: "How Many Linux Users Are There (Really)?", everyone in the modernized, computer using world uses Linux every single day. So now it's time to get gaming on GNU/Linux and on the Desktop computer - no problem, that's what I say.

"Why is this, you might ask? Because the Open Operating System allows utmost amount of innovation to grow from the base of it. When an Operating System is Open, it allows for the most state of the art changes to be made to the core of it easily, which allows the Open Operating System to remain in the forefront of technology. The Open model also allows for the maximum amount of advancement because it allows input from a whole planet of humans seeking to be enable themselves with technology versus the relatively small number of employees at a specific company. The Open Operating System creates the solid foundation upon which all other types of good software should be built upon."
