Hey, they got it wrong: while Linux is clearly evolving by means of natural selection (the mutations to the kernel code being clearly more or less random, and they are then filtered by selection by the users), closed-source software is a case of intelligent (?) design.
Which is a very good argument to show that in the long run, evolving systems beat designed system (even though they have a more difficult start).
If there is such a thing as coevolution, then Linux applications need to evolve more quickly before Linux is crowded out by Microsoft. Applications are more important than the OS.
