Linux Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols at Computer World asks himself when he first started using Linux after attending the Linux Foundation Summit where several others were asked the same question. The Linux Foundation has posted a video of some of the answers; boy, do I feel young.

I like to think that it's the job of Linux to break the back of Windows and both the Microsoft monopoly and the resistance to Free software in the industry and generally. Once there's no more lock in and the playing field is pretty level I believe Linux will be replaced quite naturally by a superior system. The superior replacement will by necessity be Free and few will mourn the loss of Linux.

Maybe it will be the Hurd. Haha, who am I kidding? But it will be something. Linux is not the be-all, end-all of operating systems, it is just the herald of a new compatible era.
