"Linux has been around for almost two decades now. It has become
a resounding success as a server OS (for example as the L in the
famous LAMP stack), and more recently as a mobile OS (Android). But
what about on the desktop?
"Linux enthusiasts have been predicting the rise of Linux as a
desktop OS for the better part of a decade. To name just one of
many examples, in 2003, Siemens Business Systems predicted that
Linux would have captured 20% of the desktop market by 2008.
"Well, it's now 2010, and desktop Linux isn't even close to 20%.
Or one tenth of that."
