"This is not to say that I don't find Linux incredibly
useful and liberating to use. Believe me, I do. I like Linux's
efficiency, its reliability, its responsiveness, and its immunity
to malware/viruses/spyware that the Windows environment is
constantly under siege from. I also like, use and enjoy many of the
Open Source and Free Software that originated on that platform.
However, even all of that is not enough of a lure for me to use
Linux exclusively for both my professional and personal computing
"Arguably, in the last 10 years, Linux has matured from a OS
that was strictly for UNIX and technical sysadmin-types to a robust
enterprise server OS that can scale all the way up from low-power
x86 processors to the most powerful mainframe computers and
massively distributed architectures. Nobody, especially myself,
will question Linux's huge impact on mid-range and enterprise
computing as well as in embedded devices."
