revelations to your deepest technical questions
By Alice Hill
|Dear Alice, What do you
really think of Linux? I hear a lot about it, but Iíve never seen it.

Alice: I have to say that technically and even philosophically, the whole Linux movement has been a joy to watch. But the mounting frenzy and fanaticism is starting to remind me of the thugs who embraced OS/2 to death and took anyone to task for not loving their OS darling. Way back when, OS/2 people kicked me around the block for saying "nice platform, shame no one will use it enough to make a difference" and I guess itís just time for history to repeat itself. So let the Linux crowd sharpen its spears, because from what I can see, Linux is a niche product and always will be.
