DesktopLinux.com Finally Dies

A while back DesktopLinux.com changed ownership when the corporation owning it was sold. Since then the site has been rudderless with no moderator/authour and gradually fewer contributors to the public forum.

For several days now DNS still works but there’s nothing there… and the IP address has changed.

The domain is now registered by GoDaddy’s Domains By Proxy so this could be some kind of hijack, a change of ownership or …

Netcraft shows no IP address.

    Maou Sadao, it looks like even the industry wants Linux to get some good growth.

    1. Smartphones – 75% for Android Linux
    2. Tablets – 56-57% for Android Linux (soon over 60%)
    3. Notebooks….ChromeBooks are coming…

    Nope. Still going strongly. With Dell and Canonical actually having salesmen working on the task, GNU/Linux is reaching more retail shelves than ever. Even better, while Wintel PCs are not selling, GNU/Linux PCs are having huge growth.

    Maou Sadao really are you that far out of reasonable ideas that you have to resort to a joke this stupid.

    Let me fix that for you, Mr. Pogson:

    Desktop Linux finally dies.

    But even that is inaccurate, as it never was alive to begin with.

    Looks like somebody forgot to renew the domain name!
