Linux

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.
