“I expect that, around 2009, we will have seen the last application developed specifically for Unix, after which no applications will be developed just for that operating system, though updates to existing applications will continue for some time to come,” George Weiss, a Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst, according to eWeek, told attendees in his presentation titled “Planning a Third-Generation Linux Enterprise”, at Gartner‘s annual Open Source Summit at September 20th, 2007.
