"But it's remarkable that an open source movement backed by a
handful of commercial entities with very little marketing muscle -
at least compared to the established proprietary and Unix operating
system providers who made so much money in the 1980s and 1990s -
could take on the data center and, more importantly, get the
begrudging support of the very system sellers who had the most to
lose if Linux took off. This is a testament to the powerful idea of
a cross platform, open source operating system. Linux is what Unix
should have been and wasn't."
