“Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great al [sic] the attention
Linux has been getting recently, but it’s getting to the point
where it’s getting real old. It seems like someone goes out,
comes up with a good story idea, only to be quickly copied by
dozens of other writers. Leaving we readers with a slew of stories,
basically restating the same set of facts.

“Am I the only one who is growing weary of this? What I wouldn’t
give, for an original, well researched, article on Linux. First,
there were articles on why you shouldn’t use Linux… Most
consisting of such arguments as there’s no support (missing the
concept of not needing support so much entirely), no company
controls development (to screw it up), no apps (except the few
thousand on FTP servers and other places), and other rather
pointless arguments.”

“Then there were the infamous benchmarking articles. Proving
which OS is better in situations that reflect almost nothing even
resembling real life for most admins.”
