"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."
