"We have now reached the stage when Open Source has given its
skeptics pause. Linux and Apache are now the objects of awe, not
ridicule. The Open Source model is acquiring a mystique rather than

pendulum is in danger of swinging in the opposite direction, with

the likelihood of Linux dominating each."
