Rant Mode Equals One: The Linux Reality Versus the Microsoft Dream
When Microsoft's Steve Ballmer said Linux was "crummy," Paul Ferris swallowed a Rant and smiled. When Jim Allchin decided to drape Microsoft in the flag and imply that open source software might be un-American, he had enough. "The GNU General Public License is no more anti-American than the United States Constitution. True, honest to God innovation is happening with Linux right now, and the party is open to everyone -- including Microsoft if they want to get in on it. It's a growing phenomena that is creating intellectual property and true new innovations," says Ferris.

Joe Pranevich: Wonderful World of Linux 2.4
"Linux 2.4.0 was released without much fanfare on January 4th, 2001. Although it has often been criticized for tardiness, the Linux kernel adheres to the Open Source philosophy of releasing code when it is ready."
(Jan 5, 2001)
Linus Torvalds: And oh, btw..2.4.0 is out
"In a move unanimously hailed by the trade press and industry analysts as being a sure sign of incipient braindamage, Linus Torvalds (also known as the "father of Linux" or, more commonly, as "mush-for-brains") decided that enough is enough, and that things don't get better from having the same people test it over and over again. In short, 2.4.0 is out there."

Enterprise Linux Today: Sun's Linux Strategy: Judge Deeds, Not Words - and Listen to IBM
"The first new products released by Cobalt since its acquisition by Sun are still running Linux, but that may not be the end of the story. IBM thinks Sun's actions have "let the Linux genie out of the bottle" and Sun won't be able to put it back in, or control it. And at least one IBM exec thinks that IBM's Linux strategy is starting to pay off."
