In reply to Katherine Noyes
As you noted, the most requested feature was a cell - lo and behold, the iphone, only a few hundred dollars more than a deadend zune with zero cachet. For a few hundred more, they get an ipod wrapped around an iphone - two of the most cachet devices in the last 6 years. 70% of Zune users said they wanted an iphone.
Not sure why they keep talking up the Xbox likes it's some great hope of MS. They are in the hole for $16 BILLION in which they will never recover - especially with a product with a 40% fail rate and MS' refusal to recall it. It's the Ford Explorer of 2007. It's dead. The name branding is now equated with a dead console.

What is the state of the Linux desktop?
It's edging its way into the mainstream.
It's wildly popular -- but only with open source fans.
It's in trouble due to fragmentation.
It never had a shot in a Windows-dominated PC world.
It's too cumbersome for most computer users to bother.
I'm not familiar with the Linux desktop.
