crn.com: Last month in a research note on corporate desktop trends, Forrester analyst Ben Gray acknowledged the existence of "fairly impressive industry buzz" on the future of Linux on the desktop, but said Linux still represents a tiny share of the corporate desktop market.
liquidat.wordpress: The entire process actually works with Konqueror (3.5.9 on Fedora 8), so there is no need for Microsoft software at all. If I saw it right there wasn’t even flash or anything else used. Just a plain page which, in the end, offered me the files inside a zip container.
