Bridge to Linux Island

Author: JT Smith

E-Commerce Times reprints on OS Opinion article: "If Linux is ever going to succeed on the mainstream
desktop, it needs to give users a reasonable hope
that the application they want will run on Linux
and that the hardware they use has a driver for Linux.
This means Linux can't be the No. 4 or No. 5 choice for an
application writer thinking about which operating system she
should port the application to, or a hardware vendor
thinking about which operating system it should write
a driver for.
It has to be No. 2, and trying harder."
