Separating fact from fiction about Linux

Author: JT Smith

From commentary at ZDNet: "Over the last six months there's been plenty of evidence of mainstream adoption, even though
it's mostly as a host for Apache. Linux patently works -- it does what it says on the tin. And the
successive evolutions have all been in the right direction.

However, some of the claims
made by Linux vendors are
unsupportable. It doesn't
constitute an alternative to
Windows on the desktop,
largely because the
applications aren't there. Why
would anyone abandon MS
Office for StarOffice?"
