How Was Desktop Linux In 2006?

OSDL, has published its first year-end report on the desktop Linux ecosystem. The report covers various issues like improvements, compatibility and interoperability, standards, new applications and market growth. It concluded with

The past year was a year of steady growth and development for desktop Linux. Important new functionality was added to the operating system. Significant standards and technologies that enable interoperability both within the community and with other desktop technologies have been put in place. The community continues to release new versions of desktop Linux. In short, 2006 has set a strong foundation for desktop Linux to grow as a serious desktop option in 2007.

I agree. In addition to the improvements, I have seen increased awareness about Linux and open source, even in the unexpected domains. The momentum is sure in the favor of Linux, it needs some more solution-oriented developments to intensify it.
