Linux "I've been saying for years that Linux was well along on its way from being the tech fanboy operating system of choice, to becoming one of big business' favorite operating systems. Well, I was right all along, but in 2006, that progress smacked many Linux fans in the face. This is my list of the five most significant changes in Linux this year. They are not changes, however, that many who have embraced Linux in the past will appreciate. Like it or lump it, these are the changes that I also think clearly predict Linux's future in the mainstream."

Right... So everything which is propriatory is garbage, free as in beer rulez, etc. etc... Well, here is some food for thought - not everybody in the world is willing to sit on a cardboard box just because it's free - some actually might prefer a padded chair. Which, BTW, is also free (as in gratis), but comes with a clause asking you not to break it's legs off. I, for one, prefer to sit on a chair - enjoy your cardboard box.
