ZDNet has a column by Richard French, the big boss of OSDN, of which NewsForge is part. " It's Microsoft that diagnosed Linux as a supposed 'cancer' and polarized the
debate to begin with. So I'm here to offer a second opinion: Contrary to Dr. Ballmer's misinformed
prognosis, the weight of evidence shows that Linux, and open source software in general, can in
fact co-exist with proprietary software."
