Desktop Linux: Don't count it out, yet

Author: JT Smith

Techweb.com has a column: "As a longtime Windows reviewer, Linux's prospects on the desktop have never
seemed bright to me. But there's something about Linux. Once you try it, despite
how difficult it is to master and use, it gets under your skin.

Linux has other things going for it too: A committed developer community;
increasing focus on enterprise needs; low cost compared to Windows; open source code; and no annoying
anti-piracy schemes. And, for some, Linux is attractive simply because it isn't made by Microsoft."
