“Lets just imagine that we are a programming gurus. We
have written all sorts of programs from spread sheets, financial,
graphical drawing, GIS and even lotto programs. We have done silly
little programs which move animated faces around the screen and
written programs for constructing kitchens. When it comes to
programming in windows there is nothing we cannot do.
“Yet we see the changes in the wind. We can see that there are
more opportunities to display our programming power than ever
before. For many years there was really only one operating system
we needed to program for and now there is a smorgasbord of choice.
The currently fastest growing alternative we see is an operating
system which many call Linux.”
