The emergence of Linux is the most exciting development in the operating system
arena (and possibly the entire software industry) in well over a decade, offering
the best chance to break the Microsoft stranglehold on the PC desktop. Linux
is an open
source operating system (free of charge) that has already captured
a significant portion of the server market.
