“If you haven’t heard about Linux, don’t sweat it. You’re in the
majority. This renegade operating system — the software engine
that communicates between the computer’s hardware and applications,
such as a word processor — is not yet ready for consumers.

“But Linux (pronounced LIN-ucks), once only the crusade of
programmers aiming to unseat Microsoft Corp.’s Windows OS, is on
the rise as a non-Windows option for business computers. And it
won’t be too long before it will be ready for consumers to use as
an alternative to Windows.”
