Top three mobile application threats

Intel Developer Forum Pat Gelsinger, senior VP of desktop products at Intel US, told The Register today that projections showed that Linux is growing fast as a platform for the server market. But Gelsinger, who tomorrow will deliver the first keynote speech at the Intel Developer Forum, said he thought it was unlikely that the phenomenon would have the same effect on the desktop. He said that Windows NT server was projected as showing flat growth during this year, and Linux was popular with ISPs and others, while sales of other flavours of Unix were flat. Gelsinger said that on the desktop, Linux was a different matter, because of the lack of applications for the platform and because there was still no agreement on an interface which could match Windows' ease of use. Further, he said, Microsoft ruled the application market, and that there were few apps available for end users on the desktop. ®
