Is Linux the New Latin? (Live from LinuxWorld)

Author: JT Smith

From Netslaves.com: "Looking around at the
attendee crowd and the exhibitors, I've come to a conclusion about Linux and open source software in general:

Linux is the new Latin.

In medieval times, there were two predominant languages in any region-the local language or 'vulgate' and Latin,
which was used by the ruling elite at the time. All Church and legal documents were written in Latin. This had two
results: Anyone important could read them, and your average peasant never could."
