"Today, a decade into Linux, there are millions of Linux users
who, by their very use of Linux, are able to look down upon the
owners of machines running the commercial operating system. Lusers,
we call them, and with considerable justification. Appliance
owners. We have sympathy for those who embraced the previous noble
attempts, the Amiga owners, the OS/2 users. It wasn't their fault,
so our hearts are open, but to us they're lusers, too."
"We're unstoppable. We can thumb our noses at everyone. We can
taunt them a second time.
"And if we believe that. we're fooling ourselves. Yes, Linux has
grown in wonderful and unexpected ways, and has become the
tremendously competent operating system that no one expected. But
step back and take a look."
