"I believe that it's a true paradigm shift.
"In the 1980s, there were SCO Unix computers everywhere. In the
late 1980s, everyone moved to Novell servers from SCO Unix. In the
mid-1990s, Novell was out in favor of Windows servers and now the
trend is toward a Linux model. Novell abandoned its NetWare
software in favor of Linux and Microsoft is also making progress in
the Linux realm. This is one trend I foresee sticking around for
more than just 5 years or so. Linux is still growing and
becoming--yet to reach its true destiny although I think that cloud
computing is close."
