Yet another Clueless blogger...

I am extremely disappointed in the loevel of reporting Forrester is lowering itself to.  One of the bloggers over there is now calling Linux dead.  That's right he was dumb enough to say that the most popular open source project in the world is dead, or at least dieing.  The really dangerous thing about this is that the headline doesn't really match the content.  He takes such a crazy stance on what makes an OS.  Then there is the issue that unlike the other issues we have been reporting about reaching out to Geeks, Forrester reaches and tries to target people who aren't technical like Managers and C level execs.  So now Linux support people get to spend more hours explaining why it's so awesome and of course isn't dieing.
