LinuxPlanet: Editor's Note: The Readers Respond

Jul 06, 2000, 16:38 (4 Talkback[s])


Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Kevin Reichard for this link. ]

"Last week's editorial on Microsoft and Linux provoked the most responses via e-mail (as well as responses posted on Linux Today) in the history of LinuxPlanet. Since we don't have talkbacks on LinuxPlanet yet (they are in the works, however), many of you reading the column via e-mail had no public mechanism for responding to the column--so you did the next best thing and deluged me with e-mail. Virtually all of the responses were intelligent and made for interesting reading, even (and probably especially) those that disagreed with what I wrote. Featured here are the best of the responses."

"There is one thing, however, that all the letter writers wrongly assumed: that when I spoke of the browser of the future, I was speaking of Mozilla. Not necessarily. For the record, my personal viewpoint is that within the next two or three years (the timeframe used in the original column), the Konqueror Web browser will be a major force in the Linux world. We are seeing the power of the Open Source movement, and it won't be long before projects developed under the KDE and GNOME umbrellas will surpass commercial software."
