The Greek Alphabet

,----[ Quote ]
| I sometimes wonder if there are people in 
| this business who think that the third letter 
| of the Greek alphabet is "RC". This is only 
| in part due to the regrettable decline in 
| classic education, but more largely due to 
| the expanding popularity and importance of 
| pre-release software distributions. In the 
| world of Linux distributions, this tends to 
| run in approximately 6-month cycles, and we 
| are now entering the most interesting and 
| hectic part of that cycle. Here are some of 
| the highlights...

The Linux community is fragmented, or is it?

,----[ Quote ]
| So while the Linux community may look
| fragmented to those outside looking in, in
| reality it has a stronger, larger bond than
| any proprietary company can ever hope to
| achieve. It is the individuality of it's
| members which drive and motivate innovation as
| well as the shedding of unneeded cruft. What
| is good in Linux quickly propagates through
| the rest of the Linux community and what is
| not fades away.
| This is, in my humble opinion, the reason why
| Linux is becoming so powerful and in a
| surprisingly short time has surpassed the
| capabilities of older, more established
| operating systems. This is why proprietary
| companies have made efforts to either embrace
| or destroy the Linux community. Those who have
| embraced Linux have not lost anything and
| those who tried to destroy it have, in some
| cases, lost everything.
