Spoken like a true champion of the Linux cause. The Super Stupenderific Linux Revolution is coming!! Viva Linus Torvalds!!

Wait, where have I heard that before? Oh yea, in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, in 1999 it skipped a year for some reason, then in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, etcetera... etcetera... etcetera....

Huh? Are you drunk? At least make an effort to follow the conversation. My post was in reply to a comment about Google's Gmail services going down.

All of Google runs on Linux. Gmail, Maps, everything at Google runs on 10's of thousands of Linux servers.

But to respond to your inane comment, Linux is already #1 in market share for internet web servers, embedded devices, networking equipment (nearly all new Cisco routers and switches run a Linux kernel), supercomputers (8 of the top 10 supercomputers in the world run linux), mobile devices (the 10's of millions of Android phones out there). Linux already is #1 in nearly every computing segment! The only segment Linux isn't #1 in, is the very bottom of the pile, the lowest common denominator, the desktop.

Compare that to Microsoft's ever hopeful cycle of try-fail-try-fail when it comes to any of the aforementioned markets.

"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
