Some thoughts on Linux's most recent developments and where it might go to from here.

Introduction
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has been writing about technology and the business of technology since CP/M-80 was the cutting edge, PC operating system; 300bps was a fast Internet connection; WordStar was the state of the art word processor; and we liked it!

Steven was also the first writer to notice this little thing called the Web and he thought it just might be important some day. Who knew!? :-)
