"The battle for your computer's hard drive is shaping up to be a
contest between the mighty empire of Bill Gates and a loose cadre
of devoted hackers."
"If Torvalds succeeds, computers and software will be cheaper,
less likely to crash and generally better, the system's advocates
claim. Microsoft's Windows is not the only software in the hackers'
sights. The process used to create Linux can and is being used
across the software spectrum. At risk is the revenue from every
software program Microsoft sells, including its hugely profitable
Office range of programs used by business."
