OSWeekly.com – China's Linux Adoption Threat to Microsoft?

Quote:

"Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I believe that China will easily push Linux
into dominance as the number one OS in the world. I mean think about
it, the numbers will eventually speak for themselves based on the
overall Chinese population. Being the Chinese can push out Linux
devices in such large numbers, the Chinese government is working like
mad to make sure they achieve the widest adoption rate possible. After
all, they have an obvious vested interest here."

Hmmm!

"I've been a Linux desktop user for a really long time, and every year
there's a collection of new stories saying this is the year of the
Linux desktop, this is the year Microsoft is challenged. But the

Introducing Flock Beta 1
Posted Monday, Tuesday, Jun 13 by Bart Decrem

 Hello again,

We are delighted to introduce the first beta release of the Flock browser, aka Flock 0.7. Here’s what it is, what it isn’t, and a company update.

Back in October, when we introduced the company and released our first developer preview, we generated quite a bit of attention. A lot of people were intrigued by the concepts we introduced, but one of the critiques we heard over and over was that the product wasn’t ready for prime time (it wasn’t – the version number was 0.4.something, but we did brag a bit too much). Moreover, some people wondered what problem we were trying to solve that Firefox plus a set of extensions couldn’t solve. For the last six months or so, we’ve kept our nose to the grindstone, and now we’re inviting you to try out our first beta release.
