"A group of Linux enthusiasts met at the Minto Suites Hotel,
downtown, to discuss the massive potential their favourite
operating system could play in the future of e-business."
"Making presentations at the conference were companies such as
CGI, Oracle and Caldera Systems Inc., all of which agreed, the
exponential growth recently experienced by Linux has taken the
industry by surprise."
"When we first looked at Linux, not too long ago, we said
that Linux would go strategic (large scale) within 12-18 months,"
said Burns MacDonald a senior consultant with CGI Group Inc. "But,
we were wrong, it's happening now."
