Recent numbers support the idea that Android/Linux tablets will overtake iPad shortly, according to Digitimes. Growth is huge with the world shipping 50%+ more Android/Linux tablets in August than in the whole of the second quarter. For all of 2011, Digitimes estimates Android/Linux tablets will ship 33-40% of the number of iPads shipped. If the growth continues and repeats what happened with smart phones, in 2012, Android/Linux will leave iOS in the dust while Phoney “7” is still at the starting line.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
