No need for stockings. No need for a holiday bonus either. OSS goodies are
free and are available regardless of the time of the year. One needn't be
privileged to get valuable software.
As a recommendation, eye the release of WordPress 2.0 on the 26th of the
month (yes, Boxing Day). We're expecting millions of downloads overall,
each of which employs a LAMP server.
I volunteered to stay in the support forums and handle some of the load.
Future of the CMS looks bright for Linux.
