[News] [Linux] Linux Has Advantage in the Mobile OS World

How Linux morphed from a server to a mobile OS

,----[ Quote ]
| When evaluating Linux as a possible OS candidate, it is important to
| remember that the Linux "model" for mobile devices is horizontal. That
| is, Linux is not presented as a vertically integrated top to bottom
| solution for a mobile device supplied by one vendor.
| It's a sharp contrast to the other OS suppliers such as Microsoft
| with Windows Mobile, Symbian and PalmSource. These suppliers
| support a highly integrated software stack, incorporating not
| only an OS but also extensive middleware and application layer
| pieces. Arguably the price for such integration is lack of
| flexibility and loss of control. 


Microsoft taps mobiles for developing world

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft is facing fierce competition from Linux, however, most
| notably the One Laptop per Child project to ship low cost
| notebooks to schools in developing nations. 
| Linux vendor Red Hat unveiled a Global Desktop last week
| targeting computers at small and medium sized businesses as
| well as governments in third world nations.

Linux expected to be leading Smartphone OS market by 2010

| that Linux is set to become the leading Smartphone OS by 2010.
