    Now this is interesting...



    There's been some talk about getting Linux into the desktop market by having developers write programs for both it and OSX, could this be a step forward in that direction?

    click me or I'll stick an exploding penguin on you!

    I think its fantastic. I forget when, but there was a Java Conference and one of the members here went. All he could say was that TiPBs were everywhere he turned.

    With Linux it could be the same thing - spreading the style around.....

    Good for Apple!

    I just hope this makes Linux a bit more user friendly. I installed Mandrake 8.2 on my PC awhile ago but I ended up uninstalling it because I couldn't get anything to work! I'm no techie, so every bit of code that I entered into it was alien to me. Other than that, it had some nice features. Plus it was snappy. :)
    I'm willing to try it again when it gets developed a little more. It's come a long way, but it's still not a good desktop alternative yet. I'd like to see how Lindows turns out. That's one company I'll be watching in the next year or so.
    :)
