Author: JT Smith

From an InfoWorld story: "Although Linux is ever gaining more supporters, its status as a truly open-source operating system is not assured, industry pundit Nicholas Petreley said Wednesday in a keynote address at the NetWorld+Interop 2000 show. Linux is endangered by the popularity of the businesses formed to sell and service it, he said. Red Hat, Caldera Systems, TurboLinux, and other Linux vendors can potentially stifle its development by packaging a single standard for the OS, he said."
