TechWeb asks Microsoft senior v.p. Craig Mundie about predictions at a Linux panel at Comdex that Linux will pass Windows as a key operating system, especially overseas. Here's what he says: "I think to some extent it's going to be hard to find how resources in the open source environment are going to get mustered to develop tools for next-generation services. If people are satisfied living in the browser model and they want to buy free software, then Linux will be a choice. But we don't think that's going to be a long-term model that predominates in the Internet era."
