Linux: Don't believe everything you read

Author: JT Smith

"One of my jobs here at Linux Online for the past year has been to post articles about Linux
from both the specialized and mainstream press. After over a year of doing this, I have come
to the conclusion that the specialized computer press really doesn't understand Linux. As a
matter of fact, quite contrary to the rules of logic in this case, the popular press, epitomized by
web sites like CNN's, actually does a better job at reporting fairly on the Linux phenomenon.
You can count on them for a pretty fair "just the facts ma'am" reporting about our favorite OS.
My hat also goes off to Stephen Shankland whose reporting appears frequently on ZDNet and
CNET." More at Linux.org.
