Veteran's Day, 2006

Veteran's Day, 2006: Thanks to all who served, in peacetime and in war, declared and undeclared. Thanks to those who volunteered, and to those who answered the draft. Thanks for fighting to keep us free, a battle we continue at home as well as abroad. Thanks for risking your lives. And thanks to far too many for giving up their lives. Rest in peace and be remembered.

The war is over and Linux won?

Dana Blankenhorn opines, “The war is over and Linux won.” Ah, if it were only that simple. I think we've seen a turning point, but unlike wars with surrenders and treaties and armistices, commercial and non-commercial software will always live with some dynamic tension, and plots by one to eradicate the other will continue. There has been a sea-change though: vendors are learning to accomodate Linux as an alternative choice of their customers.
