Apache/Linux vs. Micro$oft
Very nice article Conrad!
One thing that leaps to (my) mind in all this is the question of whether anyone - including the "MS Crowd" - can actually "stop" the pea that is a snow ball that is an avalanche that we call Linux.
I do, however, think that additional and better integrated software (read: applications) is required, as well as a standardized desktop environment for Linux to ever be considered a candidate for the current Win9x crowd.
It'll be very interesting to see what happens to the Linux "world" when some of the "giants" (in terms of development assets and cash flow), who claim to be committed to Linux, finally unleash their latest offering for our favorite platform.
