I think that the "Linux trend" is the creation of a handful of "tech"
reporters - as useless a bunch of idiots as you will find anywhere -
who have (understandably) become bored and embarrassed with their
duty of re-writing Microsoft press releases, and, in a desperate and
pathetic attempt to impersonate real journalists instead of the over-
paid corporate shills they truly are, have issued some dubious statistics
and even more dubious prognostications on this decidedly small-time
guerilla OS called "Linux". If you give even the least bit of credence
to to the exhalations of these gasbags, and truly expect anything they're
touting to amount to something more than the numerous other failed and
forgotten new New Things they've hyped in the past, then you're even
dumber than Theo thinks you are.
