While Linux is making progress in the desktop market it is only in comparison to itself. In comparison to Windows, Most Linux distributions are not even up to the Windows 3.11 level in usability. Linux can't come close to the level of convenience and compatibility that Windows has for software and hardware. Linux as an alternative to Windows is going to lose even more ground. The latest version of Windows will show a new side of Windows and improvements in areas like security and desktop usability. Linux distributors like Linspire and Ubuntu are going to have a harder time convincing PC owners to switch.
Google recently released a new service that's an online calendar for scheduling your day and planning and organizing events with your friends, enemies, co-workers, co-worker friends, enemies from work, and all other variation of enemy, friend, and co-worker. Anyone who uses the calendar in Microsoft Outlook will find the layout to be quite familiar, and everyone can appreciate Google Calendar's simplistic and eye-friendly design. Very Web 2.0.
