"I have a confession to make. I use Linux more than I
do any other operating system by a wide margin, but I also use a
lot of Apple products. In house at the moment are two Mac Minis; a
MacBook Pro, a pair of iPod Touches, and, oh yes, an iPad mark 1. I
know I'm not the only Linux or Windows guy who likes his Mac stuff
too. In recent months I've been to both open-source and Windows
tech. shows and I've seen MacBooks, iPhones and iPads everywhere.
Now, with the iPad2 on the runway, if Android, MeeGo, webOS, and
yes Windows too, want to play a sizable share of the tablet market,
they need to make moves now or the iPad 2 is going to run them
"First, while the iPad 2 doesn't look to me like a great upgrade
over the first model of the iPad, it further extends its lead over
the existing tablets."
