Linux steps into the limelight

Major global computer companies are now embracing Linux. IBM, for one, is currently running a series of television and online ads proclaiming that the future is open, as in open source computing.

They have even enlisted author Kurt Vonnegut to help promote the open source ideal of sharing your computer code with others.

It is a far cry from the days when the only people who knew about Linux were a small community of zealous enthusiasts.
