TG Daily takes a look back at some of the things they saw at CES 2009 that got little coverage. Here's a snip about Linux:
Linux Did Well At CES Because It Didn't Look Like Linux
Palm which had the Palm Pre and Phoenix Technology which had crowds checking out their Hyperspace virtualized desktop both used Linux but neither called it that and neither of the implementations looked like Linux. Both channeled Apple to create an experience unique to them much as Apple used UNIX to create the MacOS and iPhone platform and concealed all of the visual elements of UNIX to create something unique and cool. The last back story was that the most successful Linux at CES didn't look or feel like Linux at all and was closer in concept the MacOS and was vastly more popular as a result. Linux is dead, long live Linux!
