What makes a company wired? We start by looking for the basics: strategic vision, global reach, killer technology. But that’s not enough.

Slashdot reports at the end of the decade, we’ll find that Apple UNIX has overtaken commercial Linux as the second most popular general client and server computing platform behind Windows” predicts Tom Yager over at InfoWorld. That’s not a gloom-and-doom omen for the ever-popular Linux kernel, though, he stresses. While Apple and Microsoft will grapple for dominance of client and server spaces, Linux will be “the de facto choice for embedded solutions.” And by “embedded,” Yager means “specialized.” With a push of a button and a flip of switch, he predicts you’ll be able to create a configured database and a mated J2EE server — all thanks to Linux.
