LinuxWorld.com has a column about the importance of the Linux desktop, saying if Linux loses sight of the desktop, it could lose the server race as well. "Linus Torvalds himself recently said that the desktop is king. But I get the impression he sees the desktop
market as simply a competitive challenge. To many of us, the thought of Linux dominating the desktop truly is an
escape from tyranny. And we don't care if we end up running one brand of Linux, several brands of Linux, or a
big mix of Linux and the various free BSDs."
