Why the best for Linux is still to come
Joe Barr writes "SCO's pathetic attempt to grab a golden IP parachute on the way down is newsworthy, and I'm not saying otherwise. However, an IBM announcement to preload Linux on the desktop would have signaled the official beginning of DW II -- Desktop Wars continued. The real struggle is not between SCO and IBM. Neither is it just between IBM, SCO, Novell, and Microsoft. The real struggle is between Microsoft and Linux. The monopoly is desperately trying to fend off the inevitable and prevent free/open source software from ending its monopoly."
