I wonder how good old Microsooft is going to survive now. Personally, after a hell of a time wrestling with Vista 64, I can understand that nobody wants a PC anymore. I do a lot of digital photography, so that is my main Linux PC use now, but all the teenagers are happy with Facebook, and taking pictures with phones. There is still a need for a keyboard, and the students have to write their essays, but a lot of this can be handled with a bare-bones Internet appliance, with the Google operating system (cleverly disguised as the independent gOS!).
