Linux also appears to be changing its colors some by getting into the embedded market. Motorola has acquired a stake in Lineo, Inc. and LynuxWorks has announced that they have integrated Microsoft's Visual C++ into their development tools. While Linux may be seeking to increase their market share, I'm sure some of you have made note of Red Hat announcing an Internet subscription service that will charge you for software updates. Sounds a lot like Microsoft's .NET strategy. I guess if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Here is an opinion piece explaining why Microsoft will continue to dominate.
