[edlug] Linux in the Financial Times




There I was standing on the platform this morning with all the other commuters. (Metaphorical) bowler hat on my head, (metaphorical) umbrella under my arm. Imagine my surprise as I get out the Pink 'Un to find a picture of Richard 'Rick' Stallman at the top of the front page with the strap 'Richard Stallman's Linux' pointing up the main op-ed article on Linux:

I turn to Comment & Analysis to see a picture of the mighty Swedoman, Linus 'Linus' Torvald, superimposed on a giant picture of the bard of MIT like something out of a penguin Nuremberg.

Quite a good article which takes an interesting line that Linux is being driven into big companies by Cots hardware, just like Windows (the bad twin, ooh-er). The main stuff under threat is existing specialist tin.
