Nice article about Linux in the left-hand column of the front page of the WSJ.

Here's a cool excerpt:

One such Linux high priest is Alan Cox, a programmer in Wales who is widely regarded as a potential heir to Mr. Torvalds. Mr. Cox keeps a picture of himself on his Web site; his abundant hair and beard recall the rock group ZZ Top. His electronic diary is widely read among the Linux faithful. Mr. Caccamo initially was wary. "I thought these guys should get a life," he says. "But then I started reading the diary, and I got hooked." He now keeps Mr. Cox's photo in his cubicle, telling visitors the picture is of his "spiritual adviser."
