"Apparently, the Internet is now like the pop music scene, with one-hit wonders and other faded stars littering the roadway. At least that's the way CNET views the path of a certain alternative operating system: "There's little question that the Elvis days of Linux are past," writes staff writer Stephen Shankland."
"Of course, Elvis was far from a flash in the pan, but CNET's point is well taken. One day your Linux OS company goes public, your stock soars to several hundred dollar highs, and everyone wants your autograph. A few months later, your stock is trading below its IPO price and you can count your fans on one hand."
