I think Linux has stolen away a lot of the sex appeal (of all things!) ... it has:

1. Democratic sexiness (in a 1960s way almost) -- since its open source code makes it somehow a more righteous alternative to Windows (especially after the DOJ).

2. Some big Wall Street fanfare. Lots of IPOs recently. And VA Linux went public in December with a first-day gain of almost 700 percent-- actually the record. These valuations scream 'sex appeal'. (Yes it dropped after that!) More at: http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1003-200-1560402.html?tag=st.ne.1002.

3. Soap opera sexiness -- Microsoft is snorting like a bull over Linux right now.
