Partially correct. Don't forget that MickySoft has and will continue to do ALL
it can to shut Linux OUT of the desktop maket. Some have said they don't fear
Linux, which is about as ignorant a position as one can take. They know full
well how much money they have lost in the server market. They're scared
spitless that the same thing will happen on the desktop, and they'are RIGHT,
IF and ONLY IF the issues of DRM are eliminated and there's better hardware
support. Applications will come along fine, if there other 2 are taken care
of.
