Making a Difference the Linux Way

As a marketed product, Linux was set up to fail upon inception and a couple of things are responsible for that fact. Why would anyone advertise a product when it doesn’t cost anything? Linux is free. There is no financial incentive for advertising something that isn’t going to bring you a return on your money. I’m not saying Linux was ever a marketed product on a large scale. I’m saying it would not survive as a marketed product – not in its present form anyway.
