"To say there was a lot of Linux news coming out of CES last
week was an understatement. As I watched the morning TV shows
present their inevitable
"look-at-what-the-nerds-have-made-this-year" segments from the CES
floor during the event, I had the distinct pleasure of turning to
my family many times and proclaiming: "See that? Runs Linux."
"It was difficult to contain my enthusiasm. Between Android,
Moblin, and other embedded Linux news, it was clear that free and
open source software maintained a large presence in Las Vegas--to
the point where traditionally hyped players like Apple and
Microsoft were left out in the desert cold.
"How bad was it? Try this: the HP Slate computer with which
Steve Ballmer showed off Windows 7 during his Jan. 6 keynote
address? It turns out that HP is apparently already planning an
Android version of the exact same device.
"So much for Redmond's market exclusivity."
