The Desperate Need for New OS Alternatives
Anonymous Reader writes "With software, there’s room for competition, and the barriers to entry are rather small in a lot of cases. If a developer has a radical idea on how to improve a certain process and solve a problem that’s not met by other software titles, he can spend some time developing a solution, release it to the public, and if it’s good, acceptance will soon follow. This is part of what makes the software business so exciting. The principle of an open market may apply for applications, but does it also apply to operating systems? Not so much."
