"Corporate America is playing a cruel joke on Linux desktop.
Businesses benefit from free Linux, improving their bottom line on
the shoulders of Linux -- all the while ignoring (and damaging I
think) the Linux desktop.
"Linux servers toil in back rooms bringing big bucks to
companies smart enough to use them. What do these companies install
on their employees' desktops? Windows, of course! It is no small
irony that some (if not most) of Linux's biggest beneficiaries are
Linux desktop's worst sponsors.
"This hardly seems fair, and worse, seems almost unethical. The
ultimate irony is that Corporate America spurns a technology it
loves -- a technology poised to reap benefits much like the
benefits of Linux servers."
