In my post on Microsoft & monopolies, and moreso into the comments of the same post over at The Liberty Papers, I pointed out the key to breaking Microsoft’s monopoly. I said that all it will take is for a major computer manufacturer to start offering Linux on a semi-large scale. That alone would be the key to giving Linux enough legitimacy that it might crack the critical mass necessary to break monopoly power.
Well, Eric pointed out this post over at Desktop Linux. To be fair, I’m not that clairvoyant, as I never expected it would be Dell to do this first. But they’re asserting their muscle in a way that will force Microsoft to stand up and take notice. And that’s a good thing.
