The Next Hurdle for Desktop Linux

Brian Proffitt at Linux Today takes on an interesting problem facing desktop Linux, as if desktop Linux didn't already have enough problems:
We just passed a quiet milestone at the beginning of the month. And while the milestone does not seem to effect Linux, it could be mark the beginning of the worst assault on desktop Linux to date.

As of March 1, it seems, all televisions sold in the US are to be HDTV ready.

I know, seems a bit far afield from the joys of Linux, doesn't it? But it could impact Linux, because of what the coming of HDTV represents: the potential marginalization of Linux to older machines or servers.
