Celebrating a decade of Linux

Author: JT Smith

From the Boston Globe: "Linux's victory is still far from complete. It's barely made a scratch on
the desktops of the world. Early this month, Dell Computer Corp.
stopped offering its customers Linux-based PCs as an alternative to
Microsoft Corp.'s Windows -- there just wasn't enough demand for
them. And Loki Software Inc., which creates Linux versions of popular
computer games, just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
But in corporate America, as Microsoft steadily ratchets up the cost of
each new upgrade, Linux looks better every day. And so does the
development model that created it. Torvalds helped create a culture,
not just an operating system."
