"In my work as a technical writer, programmer, and consultant, I run into just about every conceivable (as well as inconceivable) notion about this virtual traveling freak show we call a computer industry. That's fine, and it's a major source of entertainment. But one thing that strikes me time and time again is how self-defeating the most ardent Linux supporters can be."
"As I see it, there are five truths that everyone in the industry, not just in the Linux community or its more ardent supporters, should accept, for the benefit of themselves and everyone else concerned."
"...I'm optimistic, though. Thanks to the relentless efforts of many projects, companies, and individuals, Linux will succeed on the desktop eventually, but it will be a slow, evolutionary process, not a revolution. We just all have to keep our eyes on the prize, and pull in the same direction."
