Sorry...Linux just dosent insight as much excitement as it used to.

With windows 7 such a massive hit, who needs it?

Sure its a great "free" OS for servers. But I would run server 08 over it first.

I'm sure I'll get flamed for this but.

Linux is pretty much dead.

Lost a little luster from the Windows 7 release? Yes
Dead? Not by a long shot!

Linux will be around a long time even if it takes it mutating into a different beast. Please do not forget that OSX is actually a striped down version of Free BSD and I don't see Macs dying anytime soon.

I will have to agree that my interest in the newest addition to the Ubuntu collection does not excite me very much. I usually wait a couple of releases and then try it again so that I can actually see the changes that have taken place.

If Ubuntu can produce a more user friendly OS out of the box then we have ourselves a legitimate contender.

Another way of looking at this is, thanks to Linux, OSX and others, Microsoft rolled 7 out the way it did.
Linux share is miniscule at the moment for the desktop markets however, what would have been the alternative if Windows was the only OS available?
Would we be running 7 (in its current form)?

Linux has less than 2% market share.
It will never overtake windows NT

As MS continues to update Windows 7 and makes Win8 available Apple and Linux alike will suffer, there is no doubt.

The I'm a PC - I'm a Mac tv comercials have vanished from the tv as best I can tell. But the I'm a PC and Windows 7 was my idea, are everywhere.

Linux and Macs are not dead(entirely) but if MS continues improveing like they have they are destined for the "specialized" bin intstead of the "mainsteam".

I said I would be flamed. And this is all my opinon, but I do 6 or more Windows 7 installs a week and i havent had a OSX or Linux request in months.

To me it looks like MS has won.

I never stated that it was going to overtake NT.
What I asked for was the alternative- If Microsoft was the only desktop OS provider, would we be running with Windows 7?

Hi Joel,

Where I work, the primary systems are running Unix - some are being ported slowly to Linux (cost considerations but more so because of architecture).
We did try to introduce a component of the full system using Windows as the OS. It has not been deployed operationally despite our work on it since 2006 (could be just us )
Having said that, given my personal experience with Windows 7, I have been asking the question as to whether Windows is now ready to finally make inroads into mission-critical systems?
