Foundation To Offer Linux Support

In the few years since Linux was supposed to take over all the desktops in the world like Alexander the Great, there have been few takeovers. Many volleys have been fired across the decks from Linux advocates to Microsoft and back to Linux and back to Microsoft. Both groups claim lower total cost of ownership. Both groups claim technical superiority.
One truth has remained the same: Microsoft has the revenue stream to support and develop the product. Linux advocates have evidently realized that the lack of consistent support for the product is a problem. Thus the Linux Foundation. I notice, though, that Linus Torvalds the inventor of Linux isn’t saying anything about quitting his day job.
