It is finally happening!
Everyone these days seems to be trying Linux. In the whole 2007, i only managed to get 1 user to Linux but since last week, 2 of my superiors asked me to make dual boot (XP-Ubuntu) and 2 other colleagues bought the Linux version of Acer Aspire One!! And more have told me that they plan to try Ubuntu very soon.
Ubuntu has just become so great that anyone can use it and maintain it easier than XP and a lot easier than Vista. (After someone shows him/her how to install a program).
Also, use of Red Hat in our Application Servers has got on the table and is no longer dismissed without even the slightest consideration.
I strongly believe that the last 12 months were the Year of Linux Desktop (or netbook if you prefer...). If you think it wasn't, then this year will definitely be!
