Rise of Linux

I don't usually mirror /. articles. Hell, I don't mirror, but this article from The Economist struck a chord. A few weeks ago I saw on top of Oracle's page, "Oracle Makes Linux Unbreakable" or some such. It's awesome and incredible to see linux where it's made it today. It seems like a second ago when I heard about it from a friend with the privilege of paying MIT for education. That was in 1995. The Penguin wasn't a logo and the kernel was barely version 1.0 and you still had to explain it to your computer counterparts. Now linux is rising. I have mixed feelings of intellectual righteousness and nostalgia for the clubhouse.
