Novell’s CMO John Dragoon has a very nice article over in Forbes called “Battle Of The OS Titans” that emphasizes many important points about the changing desktop operating system scene. He says, in part:

Computing environments are being customized for specific platforms and devices to address specific user groups (mobile businessmen, desk-bound office workers, students), and even down to the individual user. This is opening up opportunities for new players.
