The last 20 years haven't always been easy. Linux has
made a few enemies, Microsoft foremost among them. It has faced its
share of challenges, too, both technical and legal, and there are
more hurdles ahead. Nonetheless, as Linux enters its third decade,
its opportunities have never been greater.
Computing is changing, and Linux is not only benefiting from
this change but is enabling it. Thanks to a shift beyond the PC,
Linux is poised to become more than just an OS, but one of the most
transformative forces in computing history -- and it's happening
right under everyone's nose.
