This little excerpt is very exciting, I think. If the eWeek report is correct, and this truly does have the backing of the corporations listed, then it sure seems like people are starting to get serious about the real possibility of a Linux Desktop that has a chance at challenging the Windows desktop market share.
I’m guessing that they’ll first be targetting end-user desktop market space, which shouldn’t be all that difficult, imho. Heck, I’ve been doing it for 10+ years now. What would be really interesting, however, is if they can target the corporate desktop environment. Now that’s a different animal entirely.
Someone, please pay me to help develop the Linux desktop?!?!? =:/
