Since one can run Android on GNU/Linux and the application or parts of it now run on Android/Linux, the great day is at hand where lovers of PS can use GNU/Linux to get the job done. I’ve never liked PS much. I’m happy with ImageMagick and Gimp but whatever works to get people free of M$’s monopoly is fine by me. By now everyone knows M$ is excess baggage everywhere in IT. They just need an easy path to the exit. Here it is. With tablets expected to overtake notebooks sooner or later, Wintel should fade rapidly.
“Tablet PCs will be the fastest-growing category, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35%, followed by smart phones at a CAGR of 18%. Shipments of other phones will decline; during 2013 smart phones will overtake feature phones for the first time. Notebook PCs will also experience a decline (a CAGR of -6%) as tablet PCs continue taking a greater share of consumer spending. Tablet shipments are expected to exceed those of notebooks in 2014. “
