Wow...when I read something like this in the mainstream media (well, actually I never do), it just takes my breath away.

Someone presenting honest "Facts" about Linux?

And no FUD, or spin or damning with faint praise at the end?

Let me say it again.

Linus Torvalds once told me that Linux was like a flood that rises at a rate that you don't see if you're staring at it, but will surprise you if you haven't been paying attention. That's exactly what's happening.

Well, the above can certainly be called "a slow motion train wreck" or more accurately: "a Slow motion deluge"

Fact is, only those of us who are always on the "cutting edge" are aware of the changes comming in linux. Linux is also one of those "natural forces of nature" concepts that companies like Microsoft just cannot compete with over the long term.
