See Top 8 Desktop, Mobile & Tablet Operating Systems in Asia from Jan to Oct 2015We’ve known for several years that Android/Linux smartphones were very popular in Asia. One could choose any of the last few years to declare its year, but 2015 is special. According to StatCounter, in March Android/Linux got more page-views than “7”, M$’s most populous OS. I expect that Android/Linux has more growing to do in Asia so this may become the “Age”, “Decade” or “Century” of Android/Linux. It remains to be seen but times certainly are changing and for the better if you like competition, choice and low prices as I do.

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.
