Does Windows 8 Pose a Threat to Linux?
Well it was a difficult week for those of us here in the Linux blogosphere last week, what with all the din emanating from the Windows territories to the south.
Drums, cymbals and fanfare of every sort effectively drowned out every conversation we tried to have here in these parts, as did all the frantic chanting. It was a relief when the week finally wound down and we could all begin speaking at normal volumes again.
Woe betide those with noisy neighbors!
A Remarkable Resemblance
Of course, the cause of all the partying and excitement in Windows-land was none other than Windows 8, the next generation of Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT) widespread PC platform. In a very uncharacteristic and -- it must be noted -- Linuxy fashion, Microsoft actually debuted an early version of the software for all to see.
