Switch to Linux slow start, will pick up speed soon
In the course of a decade, Linux has developed from a small hobby operating system to a massive giant. Linux has been embraced by many for just about as many diverse reasons. Computer enthusiasts have been the oldest supporters of Linux, using the constantly developing OS as a desktop workstation. Additionally, Linux can be seen in the embedded market through its use in routers, TiVo devices, VoIP phones, and other types of devices. Linux has also been accepted by many large corporations as their primary server operating system. In order to grow, however, Linux developers must target the typical home computer user as well as the typical corporate desktop.
