"Linux is rapidly emerging as a major competitor to Windows. Indeed, "the number of developers working on improving Linux vastly exceeds the number of Microsoft developers working on Windows NT" (see page 84). Intel and Netscape recently invested in Red Hat, one of several companies offering a version of Linux. A range of leading software vendors, including IBM, Corel and Netscape are creating applications to run on Linux. As Netscape's Mark Andreessen indicated a few months ago, the combination of Netscape Communicator and Linux could be the software that unseats Windows. Meanwhile, leading computer manufacturers, including Apple, Sun Microsystems, Dell, Gateway, Toshiba, IBM and Hitachi are now offering, or have announced that they soon will offer, computers with Linux preinstalled."
