"No, really. Everywhere I look, not only are Linux and open source equated, but the masses of punditry seem to be embracing it all with great fervor. This is a good thing; it's just weird from my perspective because there's so much more to open source software than Linux."

"(I'm also quite curious to see how the fervor-filled Linux community -- such as it is -- will behave as Linux continues evolving into being less and less the underdog. Will the zealots embrace and support the next worthy underdog, or gloat about how l337 they have become?)"

"The BSDs (of which OpenBSD fits my needs best), for example, run a distant second in the open source OS mind share category. However, the one open source operating system that hasn't gotten any coverage over the past week, despite having hit a major milestone, is Darwin."
