Chicago Tribune: Linux emerges from hiding

“The popular open-source system is coming out of the wiring

server rooms throughout the wired world, for more than a year Linux
has been delivering the mail, juggling the print queues, guarding
the networks and serving the Web sites of businesses on the

“Now Linux is coming out of the closet.”
