17586612 story Is Linux At the End of Its Life Cycle? 676 Posted by CmdrTaco on Thursday November 18, 2010 @01:14PM from the don't-cycles-repeat dept. Glyn Moody writes "That's what Nikolai Pryanishnikov, president of Microsoft Russia, seems to think. Quoted in the context of continuing questions about Russia's plans to create its own national operating system based on GNU/Linux, Pryanishnikov said [via Google Translate]: 'We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is at the end of its life cycle.'
