The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
SCO: What Difference Did It Make?
Prior to SCO, open source and Linux were still something that, even in the software community, a minority of largely UNIX people spoke about. However, the threats of violence against SCO, the massive denial-of-service attacks got a lot of folks looking at open source who otherwise probably wouldn’t. But I think it burned much of the behavior out, and major Linux players moved to stop it. Now I see most people viewing open source as a means to an end. As we go into next decade I doubt we’ll even talk about open source that much. It will be everywhere.
[So, first Open Source is losing momentum, and now it's everywhere. Somebody hook a dynamo to the man. The spinning could keep a small country powered.—Sander]
