Torvalds: Linux has what it takes to beat Windows in desktop market

Posted on Monday, April 11 2016 @ 12:20:51 CEST by


Speaking at the Embedded Linux Conference, Linux creator Linus Torvalds proclaimed that the war to conquer the desktop PC market isn't over. Despite barely making a dent in the marketshare of Windows in the desktop PC market, Torvalds pledged to dedicate another 25 years of his life to beat Windows:
The desktop hasn't really taken over the world like Linux has in many other areas, but just looking at my own use, my desktop looks so much better than I ever could have imagined. Despite the fact that I'm known for sometimes not being very polite to some of the desktop UI people, because I want to get my work done. Pretty is not my primary thing.
I actually am very happy with the Linux desktop, and I started the project for my own needs, and my needs are very much fulfilled. That's why, to me, it's not a failure. I would obviously love for Linux to take over that world too, but it turns out it's a really hard area to enter. I'm still working on it. It's been 25 years. I can do this for another 25. I'll wear them down.
