Desktop Hardware Suppliers Impacting Linux Distribution
Many businesses and corporations are turning to new technology to expand their reach, such as advanced desktop and laptop accessories and desktop hardware suppliers. These suppliers can often provide a large variety of products designed to work together for the convenience of corporate users. One example is the integration of desktop and laptop accessories with Mozilla Firefox browser. By combining the two technologies into a single integrated solution, users can conduct a number of activities on the Internet that include accessing a wide assortment of information, surfing the Web, running business applications, and interacting with colleagues and clients.
Each of these applications requires an efficient and effective computer system in order to run smoothly. A desktop hardware supplier understands how vital this is working hard to provide Mozilla Firefox with the components it needs to operate at maximum capacity. The organization is doing this by developing close relationships with several key components within the computer system industry. These relationships allow the Desktop Hardware Suppliers to gain acceptance, visibility, and widespread distribution. They gain adoption because they have established a strong story that demonstrates how they can deliver high quality equipment to corporations and individual buyers who require the products.
Another key indicator that Desktop Hardware Suppliers has the ability to create a powerful and consistent foundation for Mozilla Firefox is their strong relationship with Intel and AMD. These two major computer components represent the most common types of technology used in desktop PCs. Ensuring that Firefox runs well and is integrated properly with these two technology leaders enables the software firm to offer the latest and greatest products to its users. AMD and Intel are both renowned for delivering innovative hardware that allows a user to conduct a variety of tasks on the Internet. By leveraging these relationships with strong partners such as these two companies, Desktop Hardware Suppliers can gain comprehensive distribution capabilities while establishing a strong story about how they can help corporate users take advantage of what the Internet can offer.
The next step for Desktop Hardware Suppliers to take is to leverage Firefox to extend their distribution services beyond Google and Microsoft. Many people don’t realize that desktop systems can also run Linux. This fact has the potential to open up significant opportunities for many Desktop Hardware Suppliers. One way that many Desktop Hardware Suppliers is considering their chances at penetrating the Linux market is by offering add-on licensing to help end users to purchase additional resources from the Desktop Software Management system (DPMS). This licensing model has the potential to greatly reduce the cost of buying software for users.
There are currently three major DPMS products in development that could ultimately influence whether or not the Linux market penetration increases. The first product is the Firefox Next Platform. The second is the Open Watches project, which is an effort by Mozilla to create a free software companion product to Firefox that will run on top of the Mozilla code base. And finally, Toshiba is working on a proprietary mobile operating system based on the Mozilla technologies.
In closing, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said that the days of desktop systems are numbered. As proof, he stated, “If you compare today’s smartphones to what they’re like two years ago, they’re not very much different. They have the same form factors, the same basic design, the same software management, the same browsing tools, the same ability to share documents with other people across the world. And the future is very much about software mobility.” Eric’s point about the future of computing is an important one, and I’d like to thank Mr. Kusnetzky for his comments. Please consider all this and think on it.
