But now it are almost dead
The good thing is that the Linux Community don´t care about such articles.
BTW in 2012 will be the end of the world. I found so many
articles in internet about that so it must be true!
Personally I dont see Linux is going down!
Linux Visitors on Wikimedia statistic: ( http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports
Month Year --> Linux - Android = Linux Desktop
October 2009 --> 1,51% - 0,03% = 1,48%
October 2010 --> 2,02% - 0,48% = 1,54%
October 2011 --> 3,48% - 1,95% = 1,53%
Pardus is also not perfect. I see a lot of sections that needs improvements so imho Mageia is really an alternative because to have full media support all You have to do is to enable "unfree" and "tainted" repo in package manager and everything is done. Not really a problem!
And I will not be suprised if we see more distributins going down.
This is life! A continous circle of birth and death. Nothing is forever. Not even an OS
Very interesting - thanks for that! Maybe there is really some influence because of devil M$.
