Today in Linux news Silviu Stahie from Softpedia.com today wrote that Linux made a lot of progress in 2014, but was it enough to declare it the year of Linux on the desktop? That phrase has been used so many times by now that it's lost its effectiveness. But what is the criteria and who decides the winner? Nevertheless, Stahie says that with all the big companies using Linux and all the games being ported, that "yes" we can say 2014 was the year of Linux on the desktop. He concludes, "The Linux desktop totally ruled in 2014."
