A review of a recent swipe at Linux....

The folks over at TechNewsWorld.com did a nice job breaking down a recent series of debates about Linux and how good it is.  As per usual the attacks and rebuttle's are still the same.  The fight is an old a tired one.  The result is that Linux is still not a darling on the desktop.  Are you surprised?  We aren't either.  The dialog is great but focusing on the negatives of anything is never helpful.  We should all be looking to promote our little underdog and celebrate it's dominance in the Server and Embedded arena's.
