From Salon.com: "Over the past year, the information
technology elite have started to dismiss Linux as a
flash in the pan that tried and failed to dominate in a
world owned by Windows. Woebegone Linux and
open-source companies are scattered across the
landscape like so much shrapnel. The stock prices of
IPO high fliers VA Linux and Red Hat currently trade
near half of their pre-IPO offering prices. Meanwhile,
Windows XP gets the press and the plaudits.
But what's happening behind the scenes?"
