My .02 is that this operating system resides in the public domain (great).
No one company owns it (good) but also no one is really plotting a course
for it (bad).
I know you can buy commercial versions (Red Hat) but you can also get free
versions off of the web.
I also agree that it won't replace OS/400 but it can all ready replace NT
and UNIX in a lot of circumstances (IBM would love that).
I also read somewhere that Linux as it exists today supports clustering
which NT can do but only in small groups.
