Anonymous Reader writes "Let's be honest for a moment. How many of us were drawn to Linux because, in comparison with battleship grey Windows boringness and Chardonnay-sipping Mac pretension, Linux seemed... fun? Maybe it was the wee, cuddly penguin, certainly an unusual emblem for something as serious as an operating system, let alone one that also runs phone networks, supercomputers, and NASA gadgets. Maybe it was Linus himself, a guy who in contrast to say, Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, still seems pretty normal, despite the success."
