Does Linux have a future?

Posted 01 July 2011 - 04:36 AM

Open Source
A lot of the advantages of Linux are a consequence of Linux' origins, deeply rooted in UNIX, except for the first advantage, of course:
Linux is free:
Linux is portable to any hardware platform:
Linux was made to keep on running:
Linux is secure and versatile:
Linux is scalable:
The Linux OS and quite some Linux applications have very short debug?times:
Because Linux has been developed and tested by thousands of people, both errors and people to fix them are usually found rather quickly. It sometimes happens that there are only a couple of hours between discovery and fixing of a bug.

Seems like you answered your own question. Add to that many big companies use Unix based OSs for their servers, I think it has enough fans to keep it going.

I don't really see this as being discussion worthy. I'd imagine pretty much everyone knows that Linux isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Specifically, for the reasons that you've posted.

Is this really a question? I don't see your age in your profile so I can't tell if you're taking the piss or just too young to know anything.

This topic reads like spam.

Lots of keywords, no purpose.
