“The breathtaking rise of open source software (OSS), including
Linux, has forced media, governments, academics and software
producers to take it seriously. More than 10 million users
currently run the Linux operating system, invented eight years ago
by Finnish programmer Linus Torvalds at the University of Helsinki.
Apache, the Linux-based Web server, has been the most popular
server on the Internet since April 1996. Red Hat Software
(www.redhat.com) distributes Linux and Apache on Intel, DEC Alpha
and Sun SPARC platforms.
