2012 may go down in history as the year Linux conquered the mobile phone market. Could 2013 be the Linux takes over the desktop?
Yes, yes, we know this has been said every year since ... well, pretty much since Linux had a desktop environment. But this time it's different. It really is, because this time we're not talking about Linux as we know it, but in its ChromeOS guise.
Chromebooks have been around for a while, and haven't exactly sold like hot cakes. However, the new offerings from Samsung and Acer seem different. They're more competitively priced, they're being advertised harder (here in the UK at least), and in our humble opinion, a little cooler.
So, let us know if you think:
-They're the bees knees and the shape of computing to come.
-They'll do OK, but not set the world on fire.
-Don't care. If it doesn't run KDE/Gnome shell/XFCE/Cinnamon (delete as appropriate) it's not real Linux.
