probably for less than finding enough knowledgeable, authorititive
journalists to cover the embedded OS patch itself.”

ZDNet’s president and CEO, makes a nod in the direction of

commerce…”

We suspect that ZDNet will mop up a few more Linux sites
(32-Bits Online, anyone?). As ever, money, not community,
talks.
