Year 2012 in Review

2012 solidified Android/Linux’s grip on IT and showed, finally, widespread availability of GNU/Linux on retail shelves. It can’t get much better than this:

Joinup documents and facilitates huge growth in use of FLOSS and GNU/Linux in European governments.

Munich finally migrated its 12000th PC. We are so relieved that the trolls no longer pronounce Limux a failure and there’s a little matter of profit, besides.

Dell has expanded its relationship with Canonical selling GNU/Linux in more than 1000 stores in China and India and Walmart in Brazil sells more GNU/Linux desktop PCs than that other OS.

It has been a good year. Even my garden did well despite a terrible drought and my deglect. 2013 promises to be even better. While 2012 showed the Wintel monopoly flattening. I expect 2013 to show serious decline for software slavery.
