Revenge Of The Nerds

In the real world, Brenda Banks is a 54-year-old grandmother in Greer, S.C., a former warehouse supervisor who teaches rubber-stamping arts
and crafts classes. But online she transforms into "br3n," a passionate user of Linux software who cruises Web sites posting smash-mouth messages
about SCO Group. So far Banks has posted more than 1,500 messages on SCO's Yahoo! message board alone--including five on Thanksgiving.

"I feel very strongly about it," says Banks, who runs Linux on a six-year-old Acer home computer. "They want to come and stab
Linux. It's just not right."
