Linux: The Tide Rolls In

Chuck Talk writes "The last few days have been significant for the non-stop positive messages that are taking over the Internet bandwidth about Linux. Everywhere I turn, it seems that someone has something positive to say about Linux. Who would have believed such was possible a year ago today?

The good news is that Linux is being accepted, it is happening and it is exciting. The chance for men to take control of their futures is returning. I sense the thrill, excitement and hope returning to the computing community. Perhaps we can yet learn to work together and build a better future with our technology after all. After all, we learned a long time ago the lesson that feudalism is a failed system for the greater good. The future must remain open.

There are simply so many good things, that I suppose I should just begin by tipping my hat to Novell, for their flurry of excellent announcements this week. They have floored me with the sheer quantity of ideas that have exploded from their wholesale adoption of the Open Source philosophy. They had no less than twenty-five (25) press releases and announcements in the last five (5) days alone.If this shows anything, it is that good news is the message of the day. Damn the torpedoes man, they have not yet begun to fight!"
