It's time for another episode of Linux Today Quick Takes. First up: The polls.

Matthew Miller has alerted us to this poll at Deja.com. It's similar to the other NOS poll, but this one is for Operating Systems in general. Matthew is dismayed to find that Linux is at the bottom of the poll.

mr mom sent us a link to a CNET poll where they are asking for a vote on "the most important technology of the 90's. Windows currently has 40% of the votes, Linux takes 16%.

Francisco Burzi has some Spanish O'Reilly Books Reviews to read. Today they published a review for the Linux Network Administrator's Guide, the first of 8 reviews. Spanish readers should get some use out of this.

Jim pointed us to this week's Unix Riot where the author gives a 3 line mention to the Linux Demo Day. The Unix Riot also has some good info on biometrics.

A variety of people (including Lucio and Rob Kennedy) are saying that the kernel 2.2.10 is released. There is no official announcement on this kernel yet (we'll post the announcement to the newswire when it arrives), so in the meantime, you can download it from Linuxberg.

Lastly, don't miss this week's article by Tom Adelstein: How to successfully sell Linux. This is good reading.
