Information Week: Ready For Linux World Domination?

“Linus Torvalds isn’t used to delivering keynotes in front of
10,000 people–yet. But he got a chance to start getting accustomed
to it at last week’s LinuxWorld conference in San Jose, Calif.
Attendees lined up and dashed for seats like the keynote was a rock
concert.”

“The conference and trade show has given the Linux faithful a
forum of their own. The level of vendor support at this event and
the number of attendees are evidence that Linux is no longer just
an operating system-it’s a major market force.”

“IBM, Compaq, and Hewlett-Packard all have thrown their
collective weight behind the Linux operating system. Sun, SCO, and
others see Linux as an opportunity to open new markets to their own
products. Software vendors are making this the year that the Linux
platform becomes an enterprise application platform. All of this
commercial attention is creating even greater technical support for
the operating system, and is spurring even further Linux
development.”
